Oops…Obama’s teleprompter needs phonics

November 14, 2011

In yet another semantic gaff that reveals Obama’s abject ignorance of the US Military, the President mispronounces one of the most iconic battles in our history. Add this to the “US Navy Corpse-man” and several other fumbles, the question arises once again why the media attacks republicans for misspeaking but enables fools like Joe Biden, Pelosi and BHO.

Hillary/Obama surrender the 2nd Amendment to the UN

Stop the Global Gun Grab

Dear fellow Patriot,

Gun-grabbers around the globe believe they have it made.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recently announced the Obama Administration will be working hand-in-glove with the UN to pass a new “Small Arms Treaty.”

Disguised as an “International Arms Control Treaty” to fight against “terrorism,” “insurgency” and “international crime syndicates,” the UN Small Arms Treaty is in fact a massive, GLOBAL gun control scheme.

I’m helping lead the fight to defeat this radical treaty in the United States Senate and I want your help.

Please join me by taking a public stand against this outright assault on our national sovereignty by signing the Official Firearms Sovereignty Survey.

Ultimately, the UN Small Arms Treaty is designed to register, ban and CONFISCATE firearms owned by private citizens like YOU.

So far, the gun-grabbers have successfully kept the exact wording of their new scheme under wraps.

But looking at previous versions of the UN Small Arms Treaty, you and I can get a good idea of what’s likely in the works.


If passed by the UN and ratified by the U.S. Senate, the UN Small Arms Treaty would almost certainly FORCE the U.S. to:*** Enact tougher licensing requirements, making law-abiding Americans cut through even more bureaucratic red tape just to own a firearm legally;

*** CONFISCATE and DESTROY ALL “unauthorized” civilian firearms(all firearms owned by the government are excluded, of course);

*** BAN the trade, sale and private ownership of ALL semi-automatic weapons;

*** Create an INTERNATIONAL gun registry, setting the stage for full-scale gun CONFISCATION.

I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that this is NOT a fight we can afford to lose.

Ever since its founding 65 years ago, the United Nations has been hell-bent on bringing the United States to its knees.

To the petty dictators and one-world socialists who control the UN, the United States of America isn’t a “shining city on a hill” — it’s an affront to their grand designs for the globe.

These anti-gun globalists know that so long as Americans remain free to make our own decisions without being bossed around by big government bureaucrats, they’ll NEVER be able to seize the worldwide power they crave.

And the UN’s apologists also know the most effective way to finally strip you and me of ALL our freedoms would be to DESTROY our gun rights.

That’s why I was so glad to hear that the National Association for Gun Rights is leading the fight to stop this assault on our Constitution!


The truth is there’s no time to waste.

You and I have to be prepared for this fight to move FAST.

The fact is the last thing the gun-grabbers at the UN and in Washington, D.C. want is for you and me to have time to mobilize gun owners to defeat this radical legislation.

They’ve made that mistake before, and we’ve made them pay, defeating EVERY attempt to ram the UN Small Arms Treaty into law since the mid-1990s.

But now time may not be on our side.

In fact, we’re likely to only have a few weeks to defeat the treaty when they make their move.

And we definitely don’t have a President in the White House who will oppose this treaty.

So our ONE AND ONLY CHANCE to stop the UN Small Arms Treaty is during the ratification process in the U.S. Senate.

As you know, it takes 67 Senate votes to ratify a treaty.

With new pro-gun champions joining me in the Senate, rounding up enough votes to kill this thing should be easy, right?

Unfortunately, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Even with the Republican tidal wave in 2010, there still isn’t a pro-gun majority in the Senate to kill ratification of the treaty.

You know just as well as I do how few Senators are truly “pro-gun.”

Not only that, but many Senators get “queasy” about killing treaties for fear of “embarrassing” the President — especially with “international prestige” at stake.

They look at ratifying treaties much like approving the President’s Supreme Court nominees.

Remember how many Senators turned their back on us and voted to confirm anti-gun Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor?

A dozen more only voted against Sotomayor after receiving massive grassroots pressure from the folks back home.

So if we’re going to defeat the UN Small Arms Treaty gun owners have to turn the heat up on the U.S. Senate now before it’s too late!

Do you believe the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Second Amendment are the supreme law of the land?

Do you believe any attempt by the United Nations to subvert or supersede your Constitutional rights must be opposed?

If you said “Yes” to these questions, please sign the survey the National Association for Gun Rights has prepared for you.

Your survey will put you squarely on the record AGAINST the UN Small Arms Treaty.


And along with your signed survey, I hope you’ll send a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or even just $35 to help finance this battle.

With your generous contribution, the National Association for Gun Rights will continue contacting Second Amendment supporters to turn up the heat on targeted U.S. Senators.

Not only that, but they’re preparing a massive program to launch the second this treaty is brought before the Senate.

Direct mail. Phones. E-mail. Blogs. Guest editorials. Press conferences. Hard-hitting internet, newspaper, radio and even TV ads if funding permits. The whole nine yards.

Of course, a program of this scale is only possible if the National Association for Gun Rights can raise the money.

But that’s not easy, and we may not have much time.

In fact, if gun owners are going to defeat the UN Small Arms Treaty pro-gun Americans like you and me have to get involved NOW!

So please put yourself on record AGAINST the UN Small Arms Treaty by signing NAGR’s Firearms Sovereignty Survey.

But along with your survey, please agree to make a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or even just $35.

And every dollar counts in this fight so even if you can only chip in $10 or $20, it will make a difference.

Thank you in advance for your time and money devoted to defending our Second Amendment rights.

For Freedom,

Rand Paul
United States Senator
P.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has announced the Obama Administration will be working hand in glove with the United Nations to pass a new GLOBAL, “Small Arms Treaty.”

If we’re going to defeat the UN Small Arms Treaty gun owners have to turn the heat up on the U.S. Senate now before it’s too late!

Please return your Firearms Sovereignty Survey and put yourself squarely on the record AGAINST ratification of the UN Small Arms Treaty.

And if you can, please make a generous contribution to the National Association for Gun Rights of $250, $150, $100 or even just $35 right away!

And every dollar counts in this fight so even if you can onlychip in $10 or $20, it will make a difference.

Social Engineers at Work Again in the White House – Solar City

September 15, 2011

For the record, I am a sincere fan of solar power supplementation. Residents of San Diego and Orange County experienced first hand, the limitations of our inadequate power grid infrastructure. Incidentally, I did not identify any components of Barack Obama’s Stimulus II plan designed address our energy infrastructure. If he really wanted to present a plan without politics or games, he would have presented a proposal to build nuclear power plants (as he once promised), petroleum refineries and power grid enhancements. I can’t think of anything that would make the United States more competitive, but I digress.  Solar power, while ideologically and theoretically “pure,” is merely a paltry supplement to an energy equation that remains dreadfully unbalanced.  The problem with solar is not market acceptance, rather market reason.  The labor (union), energy and regulatory costs in this country have made the production of solar power resources economically impractical.  As a result, Americans need cheaper and practical energy from coal, oil, nuclear and natural gas.  The liberal ideology of the left is preventing Barrack Obama from supporting the very policies that would make cost-effective production of solar power products possible, by preventing development of the energy infrastructure available to us today.  His problem is that he wants to build a solar power industry with energy produced from solar power.  It just doesn’t work that way.  Solyndra has exposed this contradiction.

Now, the White House has finally discovered a useful liberal purpose for the military, aside from being convenient backdrops for photo ops when BHO is flagging in the polls.  Bill Clinton did the same thing, but at least he didn’t leave 140,000 service members in foreign wars without a plan to win, unless you count Kosovo and the Balkans.  However, both Presidents found usefulness in the military that had nothing to do with their Constitutional Oath to support and defend against all enemies, foreign and domestic.  To his credit, President Obama overturned the despicable policy of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell that served as the cornerstone of Clinton’s social engineering platform.  Liberals and GLBT advocates seem to forget that it was a liberal democrat that infringed on their civil rights, while they continue to demonize republicans, conservatives and the Tea Party.  Obama’s religion has but two covenants: 1) Class warfare and 2) Ecological Extortionism.  These two covenants serve as the basis for his political, social, judicial, fiscal and legislative tenets.  The US Constitution stands as an un-just impediment to his dream of redistributing the sacrifices of 250 years of Americans to the rest of the world who did nothing to deserve the product.  Those service members and veterans who have continued to bear the burden of sacrifice to defend our Constitution are the vanguard of our rights, and therefore serve as an inconvenient foil to Obama’s dream.  That has not prevented him from finding a way to exploit them individually as public relations hostages, and collectively as a budgetary honeypot for his social engineering dreams.

On the toes of the Solyndra stimulus loan scandal, the Obama White House bypassed the supply-side economic equation and issued a contract from the Department of Defense to create artificial demand for the solar energy scam.  This week, the Administration announced  a contract agreement with Solar City that amounts to approximately $1,ooo,000,000 to refit select military bases with solar energy systems.  The President’s Venture Socialist goal is to transition 25% of energy consumption on these bases to solar energy sources.  The very premise of this goal is ludicrous on its face, because the objective is completely arbitrary.  It cites no cost base reduction estimates or other benefits, other than the liberal ideological holy grail of “good intentions.”  Another notable bit of lunacy is the President’s fanatic desire to take credit for a contract that should have been adjudicated by the Defense Department.  The Left has pilloried Bush 41 and 43 for decades for their supposed support of the oil industry, yet the US never exploited any of the Iraqi oil reserves.  In this case, Barack Obama is actively manipulating a major government department to further a political and social agenda, in spite of economic futility associated with so-called “green energy.”  Conspicuously, the White House has said nothing of the impact on conventional energy prices due to the US currency inflation resulting from 30 months of stimulus programs, disastrous Treasury policy, anemic economic growth and printing of money.  Imagine how much money could be saved if gasoline reverted to the $1.73/gallon as it was in 2008 when Obama was elected.  That would be a $500 BB stimulus to the entire economy.

The Case Against the Progressive Plan- Part I

August 30, 2011

In 1961 Ronald Reagan gave a political address detailing the pitfalls of liberal and nationalist ideology. “The more the plans fail, the more the planners plan,” he said.  This timeless maxim holds more veracity and relevance today than it ever has.  Reagan’s campaign effort for Barry Goldwater was diluted by the post-war prosperity of the 1950’s and the Civil Rights movement of the 1960’s.  The sort of socialist statism prescribed by FDR and Lyndon Johnson drew upon the fears of Depression Era elders and the canard of anti-communist rhetoric.  While every politician was pushing to prove how “American” they were in the wake of the McCarthy inquisition, the American citizen refused to believe that their selfish desires for state-controlled entitlements resembled communist or socialist constructs.  After all, we just defeated the German Nationalist Socialists, were embarrassed by the Sino-Korean communists and George Kennan engraved the policy of containment in the pillars of the White House.  Americans simply could not bring themselves to recognize that the ingredients of the statist regimes we fought were becoming the staple elements of the new American Pie.

The decline of the Roman Empire sowed the seeds of the pitfalls of a republic.  Free and prosperous people, when combined in a collective society, will inevitably choose to cherish the wealth they enjoy more than the work and sacrifice needed to create it.  In the case of a democratic republic, the politically ambitious will leverage these selfish predilections to market themselves to the electorate on the basis of guaranteeing the citizens the same level of wealth and comfort without requiring the same level of enterprise and work to maintain its creation.  The United States was founded on the principles of freedom and equality of opportunity to create one’s own wealth and destiny.  Those citizens who exercised those Constitutional tenets of governance continued to covet them as the formula for freedom and self-determination, and they remained vigilant to guard against purveyors of government-promised security.  These vigilants understand that a government big enough to provide anything is powerful enough to take everything.

Unfortunately, hard work and free enterprise sells poorly to the segment of a population accustom to Keynesian government spending, Social Security and the New Deal legacy.  “That which we obtain too easily, we esteem too lightly.”  This notion espoused by Thomas Paine became the dirty little secret of politicians seeking centralized control of the American Republic.  European socialists like Norman Thomas began to exploit Paine’s warning through radical strategies aimed at the uneducated, the poor and the labor union movement (AFL/CIO) in the United States.  To power-hungry liberal politicians, the corollary of Thomas Paine’s maxim proved to be a powerful implement of control and manipulation.  In order for them to secure power through democracy, enough of the population would have to become entirely dependent on those things which are “obtained too easily.”  Social welfare programs were rebounded as elements of social justice in a timeless Marxist strategy of class warfare.  A permanent segment of preordained victims was necessary for socialism to succeed under the new labels of liberalism and progressivism.  The Civil Rights movement provided the perfect population to exploit under the banner of a new perversion of equality – the equality of outcomes, rather than opportunity.

Conservatives use this understanding of liberal philosophy to guard against the usurpations of our freedoms and the US Constitution.  Progressive politicians use the good intentions and naïveté of liberal voters to further socialist policies under the guise of “social equality and justice.”  The obstacle we face now in our modern political debate is the realization of those once-ambitious goals set by Norman Thomas and Saul Alinsky.  A statistically significant portion of the population has become dependant on the spoils of redistributed wealth and they pay nothing for it.  Thus, the United States has become a case study for the Cloward-Piven strategy, which was essentially adopted from Alinsky acolytes, community organizers and socialist activists.  In the infancy of American liberalism, politicians like Woodrow Wilson, FDR and Johnson used this strategy as a means to a political end.  However, Barack Obama is an individual who believes in the principles of socialism and the mechanisms of communism as the ubiquitous foundation for society.  Some interpret his intentions as noble and just, but those who do so are ignoring a critical detail that socialism is quintessentially un-American.  His rhetoric essentially proves my point – “fundamental change.”  His desire to change the fundamentals of this country to reflect socialist notions through central planning are a tacit admission that America is fundamentally not a socialist nation.  While his plans continue to fail, we wait to learn the details of his next plan.  Somewhere, Ronald Reagan is saying, “I told you so.”

In the next installment, I will dissect the elements of the liberal Obama agenda that are systematically destroying the American economy and society, and why none of his plans to fix it will work.

True Leadership – Michael Nutter says what Obama should be saying

August 23, 2011

Why don’t we hear this type of message from all elected leaders? All segments of our society can benefit from assimilating the corollary of Mayor Nutter’s message. A significant percentage of whites, blacks and latinos alike are infected with the sense of entitlement, fortified by decades of liberalism and moral relativism. The Democrats should run Nutter in the primary against Obama. I would love to see Garafolo call the Mayor a puppet of Karl Rove and the Tea Party. Common sense and social conscience transcends partisan and racial nonsense every time.

We Are Americans

August 23, 2011

Lt. Colonel Oliver North explains what only American Warriors can understand. When liberals and progressive socialists try to balance their addiction to spending on the backs of our honorable service men and women, we are all placed in peril. When the weak, lazy, selfish and cowardly of our society are preferred in the form of entitlement programs, welfare and perpetual unemployment handouts, we sacrifice the products of honor, selflessness, courage and professionalism gained from US military service.
