Gridlock – The storm is almost upon us

September 25, 2013

“The grid” will go down, especially if they have to do a false flag, the question is when:
http://www.lewrockwell.com/2013/09/daisy-luther/youve-been-warned/

The outgoing Homeland Security Secretary has a warning for her successor: A massive and “serious” cyber attack on the U.S. homeland is coming, and a natural disaster — the likes of which the nation has never seen — is also likely on its way

A book about it from former N. Dakota Sen. Byron Dorgan:
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/11/us/imagining-a-cyberattack-on-the-power-grid.html?_r=0

Former Congressman Roscoe Bartlett has been preaching the dangers of EMP, whether deliberate or natural, for many years:
We could have events in the future where the power grid will go down and it’s not, in any reasonable time, coming back up. For instance, if when the power grid went down some of our large transformers were destroyed, damaged beyond use, we don’t make any of those in this country. They’re made overseas and you order one and 18 months to two years later they will deliver it. Our power grid is very vulnerable. It’s very much on edge. Our military knows that.
There are a number of events that could create a situation in the cities where civil unrest would be a very high probability.
I think that those who can, and those who understand, need to take advantage of the opportunity when these winds of strife are not blowing to move their families out of the city. (source)

Don’t forget the veiled warnings implicit in predictive programming entertainment. One of last year’s biggest television hits was the show “Revolution“, which portrayed life 15 years after a deliberate take-down of the power grid.

Oh yeah, and now also we got CENTCOM contracting with a California company to enable a soldier to create 50 identities around the world to engage in chat rooms, forums and the like, complete with false backgrounds.

The U.S. Department of State reports that only 17 U.S. citizens were killed worldwide as a result of terrorism in 2011. That figure includes deaths in Afghanistan, Iraq and all other theaters of war.
You are 35,079 times more likely to die from heart disease than from a terrorist attack

One last note.

Spiritual preparation is more important than physical preparation.

Make sure you are have made your peace with God, through His Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ.

Tired of Karl Rove, the empty pontificator

March 28, 2013

I’m so sick, sick, sick of Karl Rove, a good reason to tune out from Fox News.

Such a hypocrite, who pronounces judgment on all the Republicans.

And, NO, Karl Rove, NO, George W. Bush was NOT a “social conservative“. Blah blah blah blather is not acceptable. Instead of defending the truth in statements by Republicans that are too much like normal Americans for him.

He is indeed a master manipulator, helped maneuver the country into a ten-year two-front war that is still on. They say one thing and do another. Make not mistake. There are still some 18,000 American employees still in Iraq and many more in Afghanistan. It seems that American soldiers are in Jordan training Syrian “rebels” who are fighting Assad to make the country safe for takeover by al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood. That’s what happened in Egypt and Libya.

Rove and such ilk have lost too much of America, like the 2012 elections.

(By the way, fellas, it’s NOT “marriage equality”, it’s marriage inequality they’re pushing. Even at the Supreme Court, some of the most ridiculous anti-scientific foolish pronouncements are made, such as one of these lawyers saying out loud, with a straight face, in front of the country, that homosexual behavior is an “immutable” (his word). There are hundreds of thousands of former homosexuals, including now happily married and with children in a natural nuclear family. They put the lie to this blatant misinformation. Even Fox News is covering up the truth on this one. Who is brave enough to interview someone who has left the homosexual fixation to live a heterosexual life.

“Buy the truth, sell it not”. The truth is very valuable to you, accurate information is a treasure, and it is not worth selling it out for anything.

 

Clinton-era taxes? How about Clinton-era spending as a baby step toward sanity?

The usual suspects that seem oblivious to the problem of an infinite money supply problem and on-rushing Weimar Republic sinking of the value of your dollar, are going on talk shows to claim that going to Clinton tax rates will not hurt the economy because there was so much prosperity.

Let’s even skip over the fact that Federal Reserve policies were spinning the economy into a recession in Clinton’s last year or two….

That argument only works if you declare an election like that of 1994 (or 2010 eh?) that “the era of big government is over” like Clinton did, and then implement pro-business policies like Clinton did, and if your budget is the size of Clinton’s, and your national debt is still “as low as” it was during Clinton’s presidency, indulging the oxymoronic use of “low” and “national debt”.

Oh yes, and remember, also, that he did have the “peace dividend”, and avoided getting the USA into the really big and very costly interventionist wars that G.W. Bush and Obama did, in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Libya and elsewhere.

Heck the most radical spending-cutter in Congress in 2012 is (still this month) Ron Paul, and in the campaign he only demanded a return to 2008 spending levels!!!

 

Obama speech to soldiers met with silence | The Daily Caller

http://dailycaller.com/2012/08/31/obama-speech-to-soldiers-met-with-silence/

Obama making speeches to the soldiers, trying to drum up support and let supporters pretend he is supporting them, but they aren’t stupid, and they know he’s trying to suppress their vote.

That’s where real vote suppression is happening.

Korea, Vietnam, Panama, Iraq, Egypt, Afghanistan, Libya…

Americans are getting fed up.

Co-worker has a son in Afghanistan, special forces, tells her this week coming will be one of the worst of the war (maybe he meant for him).

There’s only one candidate we can count on to stop this warrior madness. We all know it.

Glenn Beck is losing credibility, Ron Paul knows his subject

This does not pass the smell test:

http://www.wnd.com/2012/01/glenn-beck-ron-paul-backers-threatened-my-life/

This sounds like the media playbook that pretended it was a Ron Paul supporter that said “Let him die!” when a moderator asked him about somebody without insurance that died of cancer.

I told my brother I thought it was most likely somebody who did not like Ron Paul yelling that.

And that was the Ron Paul who treated such cases in his private practice free of charge when they could not pay, and worked for a while at a Catholic hospital that treated for free many patients who could not pay.

Nowadays, the people who were generally treated for free before, now get Medicare and Medicaid, so the demagogues can now say there’s all these people who depend on it. Blah blah. How much wealth would be freed up if you eliminated the zillion-dollar federal “health care” bureaucracy?

Now Glenn Beck wants to discredit Ron Paul by saying this crap? And why is HE the ONLY one supposedly getting all these “death threats”?

I’ll bet you, there are so many trillions of corrupt dollars at stake for some interests it would surprise me greatly if it is Ron Paul who was not getting death threats!

So big deal, Glenn Beck! And go have your logic examined for reality!

The thing you say is crazy about Ron Paul’s perspective on the Middle East is the same thing the CIA experts on the subject are saying, that American meddling has a blowback principle.

What, you think American bases on Saudi Arabian soil doesn’t irk some Saudis and Arabs? How about an Arab whose grandfather or cousin  was killed in Deir Yassin? You don’t think American support for Israel would not bother Arabs?

We Americans complain about United Nations authorities telling us what to do here.

And why not try the same thing that worked for so long in American foreign policy, the Founding Fathers version, be friends with all with entangling alliances with none. How about that? Speak softly but carry a big national defense stick?

Like the respected international security analysis company Stratfor said when we went into Afghanistan, they predicted this too. They said if the USA goes in and overthrows the Taliban and chases al Qaeda into the nooks and crannies and then gets out and leaves it to the Afghans, they would be able to declare a victory and destroy their credibility, as in “Don’t tread on me”, and don’t mess with this tiger.

But instead, they made al Qaeda into this big evil monster that was going to overthrow the United States of America and take us over if we didn’t invade Afghanistan and Iraq and suspend the Fourth and Fifth Amendments with the Patriot Act and put out yellow and red threat alerts and check our genitals at the airports.

Give me a break! It would be a comedian’s laugh line if it weren’t such a real threat to us!

Our biggest threat right now to our freedoms is our own federal government and a looming unconstitutional police state that has full arbitrary confiscatory powers over all our production, it’s not those Arabs, jihad or no!

Rather than paying to have troops in 150 countries around the world in 900 bases with money we do not have, better to have them spend their money here and strengthen national defense here at home, protect our own borders instead of Afghanistan’s, use the savings from cutting out useless and burdensome federal bureaucracies to pay for the nuclear submarines (which Ron Paul strongly supports).

And that way they will have to take notice: You attack us here, or you attack our ships carrying freight or passengers, we will not hesitate to defend ourselves…

And hey Glenn Beck! Since when does a Mormon oppose the Golden Rule?

Ron Paul and the dangers of rogue government

December 29, 2011

It’s disingenuous to casually dismiss Ron Paul‘s position on Iran as being one of “casually brush aside the danger of nuclear weapons in the hands of Iran, the world’s leading sponsor of international terrorism“.

Because in doing so you “casually brush aside” the obvious epic failures the United States has reaped from the previous recent attempts to meddle in the affairs of nations like Iraq and Afghanistan. Do you think active military –that’s right, active military– are “casually brushing aside” the dangers of “rogue nations” like Iran, when they contribute more to Ron Paul’s campaign than to any other including Obama‘s? And though it is common knowledge that active military has favored Republican presidential candidates in the past, this time around they are telling us that they have more trust in Ron Paul as the best leader in these troubled times.

Israel already has at least 150 nuclear weapons (that we know about). By the time Iran gets one, Israel may have 300. Poor Iran if it uses just one bomb, and if somebody sneaks one in one Jerusalem, you can count on the Mossad to know who did it, and poor country that gets a rain of fire from that kind of foolishness.

Now they’re pushing the Jews against Ron Paul, as if US policy as applied by all these other guys has been effective. How’s that workin’ out for you? WHO is one of the few who voted against condemning Israel for bombing Iraq’s nuclear site? Ron Paul of course, who says we should let them sort it out as they see fit instead of tying their hands.

Nope, good thing the people, the grassroots, the farmer, the peasant, the laborer and the clerk are all paying attention to rational arguments rather than distorted caricatures of Ron Paul’s positions.

 

How Not to Win a War

December 6, 2011

The trouble with having academics setting the rules for ground troops and officers:

Afghanistan PowerPoint slide: Generals left baffled by PowerPoint slide | Mail Online:
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1269463/Afghanistan-PowerPoint-slide-Generals-left-baffled-PowerPoint-slide.html

Its coloured charts, graphs and bullet-points are supposed to make the most incomprehensible data crystal clear.

But even the sharpest military minds in American were left baffled by this PowerPoint slide, a mind-boggling attempt to explain the situation in Afghanistan.

‘When we understand that slide, we’ll have won the war,’ General Stanley McChrystal, the US and NATO force commander, remarked wryly when confronted by the sprawling spaghetti diagram in a briefing.

No wonder the troops favor a straight-talking practical guy like Ron Paul.
