Once again, here’s our good friend, and a man who at 92 years of age, sees the direction our great Country is headed in, and has personally taken a stand in it’s defense. AP doesn’t just “talk the talk,” no sir buddy…AP “walks the walk” as well! This is quite evident as AP puts out weekly… “The Revolution,” thus putting forth the time and effort to help educate others to the attacks upon our freedoms by today’s elected leaders, and “its” media.
I personally appreciate the work AP puts into his weekly column, and wish there were more just like him! Myself included! Here’s AP…
“Armed defense of our democratic existence is now being gallantly waged in four continents. If that defense fails all the population and all the resources of Europe and Asia, and Africa, and Australia-Asia, will be dominated by conquerors. And let us remember that the total of those populations in those four continents, the total of those populations and their resources greatly exceed the sum total and the resources greatly exceed the sum total of the population and resources of the whole of the Western Hemisphere. In times like these it is immature, and, incidentally, untrue for anybody to brag that an unprepared America, and with one hand tied its back can hold off the whole world”……..”As a nation we may take pride that we are soft hearted, but we cannot be soft-headed. We must be always be wary of those who with soundings brass and a tinkling cymbal preach “ism” of appeasement. We must especially beware of that small group of selfish men who would clip the wings of the American eagle in order to feather their own nests.”…..
“I have recently pointed out how quickly the tempo of modern warfare could bring into our very midst the physical attack which we must eventually expect if a dictator nations win this war.”………..”Our greatest primary task is to put people to work. This is no unsolvable problem if we face it wisely and courageously. It can be accomplished in part, by our Government itself, treating the task as we would treat the emergency of a war, but at the same time, through this employment, accomplishing greatly needed projects to stimulate and reorganize the use of our great natural resources. It can be helped by preventing by preventing realistically the tragedy of the growing loss through foreclosure of our homes and our farms. It can be helped by the insistence that the Federal, the State, and the local governments act forth with on the demand that their costs be drastically reduced. And finally, there are many ways in which we can help ourselves, but can never be helped by merely talking about it.”
The above are parts of a great American’s speech, given many years ago, the contents are proof that history repeats itself Anyone have an idea who this is?
HOLDER PUSHES DISCRIMINATION NOW, DISCRIMINATION FOREVER…………. At the National Review, columnist John Fund, blasted Attorney General Eric Holder for advocating permanent racial disclosure in favor of black Americans. Last month in an appearance at Columbia University, his alma mater, Holder said,” I Can’t imagine a time in which the need for more diversity would ever cease. Affirmative action has been an issue since segregation practices, “he declared. “The question is not when it ends, but when it begins. When do the people of color truly get the benefits to which they are entitled. But we have an Attorney General of the United States say that force of government must be used, forever, to enshrine into law that was once used to be “called reverse discrimination,” is for him to say that American law will always put skin color above other considerations—and pick winners accordingly.
OBAMA DOCTRINE FAILURE…………Three years ago, President Obama set forth to recast American foreign policy in an image of his own design. It was one in which the White House engaged with enemies and undercut allies, apologized for American exceptionalism, and favored the “soft power” of treaties and international organizations. The “Obama Doctrine” was tailor made to burnish America’s supposedly flagging reputation on the world stage. Today we are seeing the disastrous results of a doctrine gone wrong………..Beginning in IRAN, Obama sought to engage a regime led by a man who has openly called for the destruction of Israel. Ahmadinejad was not mollified by the President’s charm offensive, and now, even in the face of escalating sanctions, Iran is ratcheting up its rhetoric, threatening to cut off a quarter of the world’s energy supply and marching towards a nuclear war.
……SYRIA, is another example of Obama Doctrine failure. The President entering office hoping the hostile regime of Bushar al-Assad, and soft-pedaled it’s criticism of Assad’s violent crackdown on anti-government protesters. The Result? Syria ordered the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Damascus, threatened the U.S. ambassador, and to date has killed more than 10,000 Syrians who are standing against the autocratic government…………..In EGYPT the President hesitated when the people called for Hoshi Burbank’s ouster, but wound up supporting the overthrow at the end. Now, though, the Muslim Brotherhood is within inches of grasping power, the country’s peace treaty with Israel is being questioned, and anti-pro-democracy American workers are facing criminal trials………….In Afghanistan, the President has insisted in on a speedy withdrawal of American forces, while”persuing negotiations with the TALIBAN….a veritable enemy that launched attacks against American troops.
In the midst of this tinder box, anti-American protests are flaming after an apparent burning of Korans at a U.S. military base. The President, once again issued an apology, yet the Taliban is calling for retaliation against the United States this is the same Taliban that Vice President Biden said “is not our enemy.”…………IRAQ ,too ,has devolved into violence following the President’s decision to withdraw all troops. In that short period of time, the country has witnessed ongoing insurgent attacks, a mushrooming political crisis, and the threat of civil war, which would aid neighboring IRAN.
Rather than pursuing the ill-advised Obama Doctrine, with a underfunded military, it is time for the President to put defending America first and appeasing and our enemies last. THAT IS A DOCTRINE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CAN RELY ON……..
THE TRUTH BEHIND OIL SUBSIDIES………….It’s easy to Take shots at oil companies, especially when oil prices are rising over $4 per gallon. Playing the role of DAVID against the enormous corporate GIANT is a way to score political points, so it is no wonder that president Obama and liberals in Congress, have issued a call for the end of oil subsidies as a way of wrecking revenge against these they say are responsible for the high cost of energy…
The lefts anti-subsidy rhetoric is right on. Ending all energy subsidies, including those for oil and gas, would be good for all American taxpayers and consumers. If those Senators were truly serious about cutting the deficit, they would also call for the elevation of the president’s pet projects, such as projects on renewable fuels, electric vehicles, wind and solar, throw in clean coal and natural gas, too. That would be the right move for the taxpayers, but that is not their goal—-vilifying an industry is their end game. There is much the President and Congress could do if they wanted to give Americans a break at the gas pumps. For starters, they could provide access to our country’s domestic energy reserves, roll back regulatory burdens on companies, and lift the de facto moratorium on off shore drilling permits. This move will not cure our energy problems, but would surely ease the immediate pain.
DEATH OF NATION BY 1,000 CUTS…………” CREEPING NORMALCY” describes a method of accomplishing major change by making negative changes slowly in small increments, not always seen as objectionable, until the entire concept of rule is irreversibly altered. Such was the method used by Marxists in converting Russia to a communist dictatorship, and Adolf Hitler’s conversion of Germany to a fascist dictatorship.
America’s democratic form of government is under attack. Presidents and others in authority have been practicing it for years, gaining momentum with Franklin Roosevelt during the Great Depression. The current government has brought the attack to a new, accelerating and frightening level. The Obama administration, assuming authority not given by our Constitution, is telling us, what we can eat, what insurance we should buy, it is by-passing Congress by making illegal appointments, telling Boeing where they can build, and the latest, telling religious organizations it must give up practices it has used for centuries—-an outright violation of the First Amendment of the Constitution. Congress seems to turning a blind eye to these acts, apparently unwilling to challenge them.
“DEATHS BY A THOUSAND CUTS “is a form of execution first practiced by the Chinese. The term describes an ancient form of torture, in which the condemned are given a series of small wounds over time until the accumulation finally causes death. Our democratic way of life may soon die in the same fashion unless Americans wake up and assert their rights of self-determination……Voter apathy is the perfect breeding ground for dictatorship. We are doing a great job of cultivating it !!!!!!!!!
THE “JEWISH” PRESIDENT……….don’t believe Obama when he says he as Israel’s back………………………..Should ISRAELIS and pro- Americans take Obama’s word when he said, “I have Israel’s back”? NO !………Here is a president who fought tooth and nail against the very sanctions on Iran for which he now seeks to reap political credit. He inherited from the Bush administration the security assistance to Israel he now advertises as proof his “unprecedented” commitment to the Jewish State. His Defense secretary has repeatedly cast doubt on the possibility of a U.S.Military action against Iran. His Secretary of State, answering a question from a Tunisian” student about “U.S. lobbyists courting the “Zionist lobbies” by saying “a lot of things are said during an election year that should not bear a lot to attention.”. In Obama’s growing period, a Chicago rabbi named Wolf, who in 1909 Waged in the synagogue, staged a rally protest in favor of Black Panther Bobby Seale, in the early 1990’s, Wolf denounced the construction of the Holocaust Museum in Washington. In1996, the rabbi was of Obama’s earliest and most prominent supporters when Obama ran for the Illinois state Senate. Wolf later described Obama’s views on Israel as “In line of “PEACE NOW” an organization with a long history of blaming Israel for the Arab-Israel conflict.
Obama had other Jewish mentors, one was Betty Saltzman, who still seethes with hostility toward the mainstream Jewish groups, and later became active in left-wing Jewish political groups like “J STREET. It was she who organized the rally against the IRAQ WAR where Obama proclaimed is opposition to an American invasion. Ms. Saltzman introduced Obama to David Axelrod, who became Obama’s advisor and political organizer. He was instrumental, in bringing longtime diplomat Denis Ross, which was Obama’s inoculation strategy to modify Jewish voters who might be apprehensive about Obama’s sincerity of his commitment to Israel. Not surprising Mr. Ross became a short term member of the Obama team.
The important question is about the Obama’s truthfulness about Israel, or is he holding his tongue and bidding his time? On the evidence it appears that Mr., Obama’s speech at Aipac was one long exercise in political cynicism.
SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL………To bad this “JOBS” bill is all the political market will bear…………….We keep hearing that the partisan gulf in Washington is too wide to “get things done” but Democrats and Republicans agree on a lot. For example both parties claim to revere the Constitution. Proof is that they are coming together on a small bill to help small businesses that the House will pass this week. There is a lesson here about modern Washington. Even the White House is on board, and not because it thought “Our Business” referred to General Motors and Solyndra. The White House issued a statement endorsing the Jobs Act, writing that “ Helping start-ups and small businesses succeed and create jobs is fundamental to having an economy built to last.” One provision, which passed the House 413-11 in November, would ALLOW small companies to use advertising or solicitations to contact investors and raise capital.
A Securities and Exchange Commission relic from 1982 bars such contact, which makes it hard for ventures to raise capital “without deep political connections. Another reform raised the SEC registration to $50 million from $5 million which will make it easier for businesses to go public. Every member voted for this, except Michigan Democrat JOHN DINGEL. There are plenty of things Washington could do to jump start growth and investment, even short of major tax reform , and the House Republicans have passed literally dozens of bills that would help the economy. But they lie dormant in the Senate because Harry Reid and his gang of Democrats won’t endorse anything without a major tax increase.
OBAMA’S SWEET DEAL WITH NORTH KOREA……….Diplomacy has costs, Tehran’s mullahs will be watching, so says John Bolton………..In the transition from an old dictator to a new one, some observers were losing faith in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, believing it has lost its magic touch in the arts of dissembling. Others had deeper faith, and were rewarded last week when the State Department proudly announced the umpteenth break through toward the goal of denuclearizing North Korea.
The two sides agreed that Pyongyang would suspend nuclear activities at its Yongbyon facility, allow very limited international inspections, and implement a moratorium on long range missiles. In the State Department’s telling on February 29th, we gave nothing in return to the North’s unilateral concessions, “designed to improve the atmosphere for dialogue and demonstrate its commitment to denuclearization. How sweet. Unfortunately, the Leap Year deal is worse than just another failed effort to chit-chat North Korea out its nuclear weapons. It provides a political and economic lifeline to Kim Jong Eun’s uncertain new regime. Most objectionable morally, despite U.S. denials, we are providing 240,000 tons of food that almost certainly will be diverted to the DPRK and other favored recipients. Make no mistake, we are simply feeding young Kim’s dictatorship Iran, meanwhile must be relishing this latest display of U.S. weakness and memory loss. Tehran sees with laser-sharp clarity that when the going gets tough, Team Obama gets negotiating. The resumption of the long-failed negotiations will bid it time, and the expectation of reduced economic pressure. Iran can even count on Mr. Obama to try to restrain Israel, it’s strongest and most determined regional opponent.
AL CAPONE’S LEGACY LIVES ON……….On March 15th the former Governor of Illinois, Rod Blogojevich, started to serve a 14 year sentence for corruption in a Federal low-security prison. In this part of America, he is treading a well-worn path. Over four decades, four out of the seven governors had been convicted of corruption and had the distinction of being the federal district with the most convictions since 1976. Since the 1,828 elected officials, appointees, government employees and a few private individuals have been convicted of corruption in the judicial zone including Chicago. All the convicted governors and 24 of the alderman had tried to extract bribes from builders, developers, business owners and those seeking to do business with the state and city.
WICHITA SHOCKER………you can beat City Hall…..Local politicians like to get in bed with local businesses, and tax payers are usually the losers. So, three cheers for the voter revolt in Wichita, Kansas. In late 2011 the Wichita city council passed, 6 to 1, a bill excepting the new Ambassador Hotel, owned by real estate developers, from 75% of the city hotel tax, plus over $10 million in other subsidies, all the skids were greased. But the voters were so enraged that they launched a petition for a voter referendum. Despite hundreds of thousands of dollars spent by the hotel advocates, almost 10 times more than opponents spent, voters routed the subsidy 61% to 39%. WHAT AMERICANS WANT FROM GOVERNMENT, AND THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, IS EQUAL TREATMENT.
WELL FOLKS THAT IS ABOUT IT, GOING TO ADD A PS,FOR COMMENTS SENT,SEE YA’LL IN THE FUNNY PAPERS……STAY WELL AND AS ALWAYS……..AP
COMMENTS; March 6th issue, page 4…”that is what the Wall Street Journal said, but in the March 6th issue Senator Richard Burr of N.C. has a letter to the Editor a=saying the Journal overlooked the provision in the tax legislation which would provide temporary user fee on the natural gas to be paid by the industry which is benefiting from the tax benefits. And Boone Pickens points out in a separate letter that it’s similar to the government building highways and the cost being paid back via gasoline taxes on the fuel consumed by those who use the highways”
“what are these so called subsidies and giveaways to the oil industries anyway ? No one ever says. Obozo and the Democrat just keep repeating that these are loopholes. Maybe they are, but what are the specifics.?”
ADDENDUM: WSJ JUST REPORTED THE FOLLOWING…..”BIG OIL, BIGGER TAXES” The industry sends more money to Washington than to its shareholders Obama says he wants to end subsidies to what he calls “the fuel of the past,” but lucky for him oil and gas will be the fuels of the future too. His budget-deficit blowout would so much worse without Big Oil, because the truth is that this industry is subsidizing the government. As for the subsidies that Mr. Obama says the oil industry receives, these are not direct cash handouts like those that go the “green lobby” They are deductions from taxes that cover the cost of doing business and earning income to tax in the first place. Obama wants to put oil and gas companies at a competitive disadvantage against other industries, like making them more expensive than his favorites in the wind, solar and ethanol industries. The oil industry paid $37.7 billion in corporate taxes in 2009, the latest year for which data is available. Why he would still raise more taxes, which will result in his tax agenda, amid political panic over $4 per gallon gasoline is a mystery.
