Is there a rule of law, or not?

Nasty Pelousy doesn't seem to think so.

There is no "other option"; stating that if you don't get the results you want you will ignore the justice system is open and notorious sedition.

1. incitement of discontent or rebellion against a government.
2. any action, especially in speech or writing, promoting such discontent or rebellion.
3. Archaic . rebellious disorder.

Refusal to abide the judicial system if it doesn't give you the results you want is the very definition of insurrection. 

So, if Ms. Pelosi isn't brought up on charges for this, does that mean there's no longer any rule of law?  After all, if our Lords and Masters elected officials don't have to observe it, then neither do we.

It works both ways, folks.  Just noting that logical point...

And the lies keep crumbling...

Yet more analysis of the Martin/Zimmerman case at The Last Refuge. 
Well first this proves this video was not released by the police department. Nor was it leaked by the police department or it would have been footage from the actual digital recording. They would not release footage from recording a monitor showing the footage, they would just copy the recorded image on DVD and present.

This is stolen and intentionally leaked “unauthorized” video footage from someone recording it from a monitor inside the Police Department. Either by an employee of the police dept., or by a journalist who convinced an employee within the police dept to film it.

So why steal, sneak, and release the video? and why via ABC ? Who does this benefit? That’s the bigger type of question those of us who have been following the media manipulation want to know.

Notice how the comment section is infested with Obamanoid/Leftist trolls?  They're running scared, people.  We've got them cold busted in their lies, and they're frantically trying to misdirect, obfuscate and bullshit their way out of it.

Ain't gonna work this time, bitches.  Breitbart Is Here.

Lies and the lying liars who publish them

Over at the Conservative Treehouse, a staggeringly detailed deconstruction of the LameStream Media's half-truths, insinuations and full-on lies (up to and including doctored photos) on the Martin/Zimmerman case is taking place.

When the truth is being presented, one does not have to work so hard to control, portray obfuscate and spin. The media have been working very hard because the media has not been presenting ‘the truth’.

But now, against the shere weight of the truthtelling, research, and presentation of facts by the New Media, the Legacy media is beginning to backtrack. Their false construction is crumbling around them.

However, we are not going to let them just skulk back into the shadows. They, the media, created this mess - and make no mistake, this is a huge mistake – and now they are going to be forced to own it. All of it.

Read it.  All the way through.  If you can do that, and still put the slightest bit of trust in the "Fourth Estate" Fifth Column, there is absolutely no hope for you.

The LSM is not to be trusted.  Ever.

How we screwed ourselves

It's been a year and a half since this cautionary tale surfaced(and I still think it would make a totally badass old-school Twilight Zone episode).  Time to post it again.

Jim could feel the blood draining from his face. His hands began to shake. This had to be wrong, this could not be possible. He raced for the phone, punched in his uncle's number, and demanded that the old man get there NOW. Jim paced the floor while he waited, unable to continue perusing the pages in the box. Not possible. Not possible.

Jim's uncle knocked on the door in short order. Jim nearly wrenched the door off its hinges, grabbed his uncle by the arm, dragged him to the box, and thrust the first paper into his face. "How?" bellowed Jim. "How is this possible?!"

Jim's uncle stepped back, stroked his white goatee thoughtfully, and calmly said, "Jim, I told you it was taken care of. You never asked how."

Read the whole chilling thing.  This is how America fell.

Whether he 'Really Meant It' or not...

...Santorum's right.  At least with Obummer, we know what we're getting, even if what we're getting is an unrepentant Marxist who despises everything about America.

With Romney, we're getting nationalized health care, gun control and taxpayer subsidized abortion on demand.  Unless it's too controversial, in which case we're getting whatever might be the most popular with the latest polls.

I'll say it again:  I'd rather deal with an honest man that I disagree with, than a spineless punk who'll tell me anything I want to hear.  Mr. Santorum, I don't agree with a lot of your social agenda, but I'll still back you over Mittens.

People, listen up.


M. A. R. T. I. A. L.

Please make a note of it.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Gun control: UnConstitutional AND illegal.

Via iOTW, we find a discussion of the Dick Act of 1902.  Here's a piece of it...

The three classes H.R. 11654 provides for are the organized militia, henceforth known as the National Guard of the State, Territory and District of Columbia, the unorganized militia and the regular army. The militia encompasses every able-bodied male between the ages of 18 and 45. All members of the unorganized militia have the absolute personal right and 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms of any type, and as many as they can afford to buy.

The Dick Act of 1902 cannot be repealed; to do so would violate bills of attainder and ex post facto laws which would be yet another gross violation of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The President of the United States has zero authority without violating the Constitution to call the National Guard to serve outside of their State borders.

The National Guard Militia can only be required by the National Government for limited purposes specified in the Constitution (to uphold the laws of the Union; to suppress insurrection and repel invasion). These are the only purposes for which the General Government can call upon the National Guard.

Emphases in color are mine.  All you gun-grabbers who maintain that the "militia" means the Army or the National Guard?  YOU.  ARE.  WRONG.  THIS PROVES IT.  DISCUSSION OVER.  Now take your illegal, unAmerican, unConstitutional and evil 'gun control' and stick it in a Very Uncomfortable Place.

Rand on Christianity

Not what you might think.  Observe, below the fold, this letter written by Rand to a Reverend back in 1943...

The coup...

...is on.  You people awake now?
This Executive Order basically gives Obummer ultimate power over any damn thing he likes, whenever he likes.  We are now officially living in a banana republic.

Our only saving grace is this line:
By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America...
By the Constitution and the rule of law, Obummer is--at the very least--acting far outside his Constitutional authority.  At the most, he's a usurper and not our legal President.  But none of this has mattered so far to anyone in Washington, and I don't expect that to change now.

How's your armory stocked?

UPDATE 3/18/12:  Many people have joined a chorus of head-in-the-sand bleating about how this 'really isn't so different' from past EO's.

Bullshit.  This is entirely and completely different.  I've elaborated on that in different comment areas on different sites, and now Ann elaborates further:

One more link...

...from Blue.
The Founders did not write it into The Constitution, nor did they codify it into law, but enough of Them wrote about it frequently and with powerful words. They wrote in some detail what was expected of the generations that follow when the government again becomes tyrannical. They understood human nature. They knew without a doubt that powerful men would again try to gain power over the Citizens of this country. They knew that men would again try to dismiss our God given rights and that those same men would try to rule over us. They expected future generations of Americans to do as they themselves did. They expected us to fight and die and to do whatever was necessary to preserve Liberty in America for all future generations.

We can never experience the full measure of the gifts that God gave us without the Liberty to lead our lives as we see fit. The gift of life. The gift of family. The gift of America. The gift of free will. Americans have been far too willing to give up Liberty for comfort. There is a price to be paid for that. A terrible price.

What are we willing to do to regain and retain that Liberty?

Emphasis mine.

Amen, bro.  A-men.

You're doing WHAT with my taxes?

I consider this "Giving Aid And Comfort To The Enemy."

During the one-and-a-half-hour question-and-answer session, Solomont asked those in attendance simple rhetorical questions, including: “Did you know that the United States sends a lot of money to Pakistan?” and “Did you know that the decision to destroy Osama bin Laden’s house was made by the United States?”

After responding to queries about the “Talibanization of Pakistan due the war in Afghanistan” and the “demonization of Islam in the West,” Solomont said Obama wants to end the long-time American practice of establishing alliances with dictators in the Middle East, a strategy which he said has failed to prevent the rise of “the bearded ones” [radical Islamists], this according to the Barcelona-based newspaper La Vanguardia, which also interviewed Solomont on the sidelines of the event.

The Barcelona meeting, which was held in a Muslim ghetto called Raval (a.k.a. Ravalistan because Muslim immigrants now make up 45% of the barrio’s total population), is an example of the Obama administration’s so-called Muslim Outreach. The U.S. State Department — working through American embassies and consulates in Europe — has been stepping-up its efforts to establish direct contacts with largely unassimilated Muslim immigrant communities in towns and cities across Europe.

Of course, as usual...no one cares.

On my erratic posting

Longtime readers may have noticed that days can go by without my posting anything.  I confess, it's due to being overwhelmed by the collapse of America.  It seems that every day, we see more disregard of the Constitution by the Thug Regime, less resistance by our supposed allies in Congress, and the world inches closer to complete financial collapse and/or Jihadist domination.

I'm just a truck driver with an attitude and a blog.  I look at the tsunami of evil coming our way, and I do, indeed, despair at being able to make a difference.  But God sends us a message when we need it, often in some of the most innocuous ways.

Our newest addition, little Glock, is barely a teenager in cat years.  He weighs in at four pounds, as opposed to Sam's fifteen and Spike's eighteen.  Now that they're getting healthier,* the pecking order is being established, and I feared he'd end up at the bottom.  Here's Sam and Glock, with my hand in each picture for scale:

You'd think the outcome a foregone conclusion?  Think again.  This little four-pound cat runs fifteen-pound Sam down and beats the crap out of him!  Even Spike backs down whenever Glock steps to him.  Glock is absolutely, utterly fearless and he's making the other cats his bitches without question.  So what does this have to do with me?

It has everything to do with me.  With you.  With all of us who comprise the real America.  Our adversaries may be many.  They may be well-organized.  They may seem unbeatable.  But they're not.  In the end, those who seek power--be they Jihadists, Marxists or any garden-variety statist--do so through cowardice.  They're terrified of anything they can't control, and, in the end, we real Americans will not be controlled.  Courage will trump cowardice every time, and Glock is living proof of that. 

If we stand strong in our faith, our convictions and our principles, we cannot fail.  Take it from a little black cat.

*No, it wasn't kitty herpes, thank God.  Just a bacterial infection, requiring two more weeks of antibiotics.  Our scratches will heal up eventually...

Label change

All posts dealing with "Operation Fast & Furious" have, up 'til now, been labeled "Gungate."  But this essay suggests a more accurate term:
In the modern case of Operation Fast and Furious, hundreds of Mexicans were murdered as a necessary pre-condition for a desired political outcome, the undercutting of Second Amendment rights in America. From the outset, the administration's goal was to bury our Right to Keep and Bear Arms beneath a growing mountain of Mexican corpses. The innocent murdered Mexicans were not collateral damage of Operation Fast and Furious, they were the intended targets from the start.

Murdergate, plain and simple.

Dear readers, it does not get more evil than that.

The label will be changed to reject politeness in favor of reality.  Now head on over to JPFO and RTWT.

An Alinskyite gets a logical beatdown

Over at the Conservative Treehouse, Sundance vivisects the comments of someone who either doesn't quite get the concept of free people in a free country...or is attempting to engage in deliberate obfuscation.

Perhaps that is the most alarming portion of the entire statement. We are not a democratic republic, we are a Constitutional Republic. HUGE DIFFERENCE, as in totally opposite forms of governance.
If a government structure is “of the people, by the people, for the people” how and when does it become socialistic and flawed to address the needs of people?
The line of quotation is from Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. The reference was a follow-on to the larger statement … “that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom”… the construct of the principle “freedom” was individual freedom and liberty. Your INDIVIDUAL freedom, everyone’s individual freedom, and the right of the individual to be considered equally. Freedom for blacks, freedom for whites, freedom for everyone; and most importantly freedom to strive forward, in a manner of their own choosing, toward their own needs and aspirations, with equality in opportunity to succeed. It is not the role of government to define individual needs, nor provide for them. It is the role of the individual to determine for themselves, as an outcome of their effort, what they desire and need. The individual must then be free to pursue, or strive, toward that end.

This is only a sliver of the whole post.  Don't forget to read the commentary as well, as other 'Treepers' add their own insights.

"...our effective arsenal is zero."

There is, indeed, an Islamo-Marxist Axis allied against civilization in general, and America in particular.  Our favorite spitfire gives us a detailed rundown on the hows and whys thereof, with a sobering explanation of how the mightiest nation on Earth has been almost completely self-neutered.  Get yourself a drink before you click the fold...you'll need it.

Left's gay-baiting attempt results in epic fail

Seems one of Arizona's most stalwart lawmen was dragged out of the closet by the Left last month.  Sheriff Paul Babeu has long been an outspoken critic of the Thug Regime, from their scofflaw immigration enforcement to the criminal "Fast & Furious" debacle.

The Left finally dug up what they thought was 'dirt' on Sheriff Babeu, and released it under the cover of bogus charges from a supposed ex-boyfriend who claimed Babeu threatened to 'reveal his immigration status.'  Turns out dude's an American citizen, so it's puzzling what Sheriff Babeu was purportedly going to 'reveal.'  But, like most Leftist accusations, it doesn't have to make any sense--just throw up a sensational headline and race on to the next one before everyone finds out the first one was a load of crap.

Is there anything real about this guy?

Ann collects yet another round of proof that Obummer is an impostor and a fraud.  She exhorts us to pray that this gains ground, and it couldn't hurt...

But even if it does, we're still boned.  Because this:

Stop and think about that for a minute. Barack Obama passed multiple SocSec numbers WHILE IN THE UNITED STATES SENATE. One of the reasons that we are totally and completely screwed is because the intel services, namely the FBI, CIA, NSA and Secret Service absolutely, positively know that Obama is using fake I.D. Either they are totally incompetent, or they are complicit. And they're not incompetent, so that leaves complicit.

Anyway, full post and five vids below the fold.

"Poverty," my ass.

If I can ever get The Infinite Blogroll working again, the College Conservative will be on it.  Because this.

This problem extends past rhetoric. His argument’s implication is that the poster and commenters are illegitimate because they have never experienced poverty. As if he has.

There is no poverty in the United States. Poverty is suffering without a safety net. Can’t put food on the table? Get food stamps. Can’t put a roof over your head? Get subsidized housing. Can’t find a job? Get unemployment benefits. Safety net, safety net, safety net. One would have to put in a serious amount of effort to avoid the government programs and actually live in poverty.

America never sees what poverty really looks like; we just pretend to know what it is. So I’ll show you.

This one's a must-read.  America wouldn't know real poverty if it walked up and slapped us.

I love Arizona.

We have a Governor and a couple of Sheriffs who aren't intimidated by our thug administration, and call things as they see them.

Of course, Ann Barnhardt, Karl Denninger and myself were calling this to your attention quite a while ago, but hey, better you see this now than never.

It's officially made the LSM.  Will you now deign to pay attention, America?

Of cats, medicine and faith

Well, it turns out that our newest addition, little Glock, had a bit more than a cold.  Looks like it's some sort of kitty herpes that got the other two cats in quite a bad way.  By the time we ran Sam and Spike to the vet, Sam bore a striking resemblance to Church after his resurrection, and Spike barely had the energy to eat(which, for him, is completely unprecedented--that cat never stops eating).  :(

So, the vet ran a test to see what this bug really is before we took the step of putting the whole crew on kitty Valtrex forever, and we'll find out soon if that's what we have to do.  In the meantime, it's doxycyclene all around for the next two weeks.  On the plus side, it's in liquid form, which is tons easier than shoving pills down a cat's throat.  On the minus side, "easier" is highly relative.  Glock takes it very well, but Sam (15#) and Spike (18#) have decided DO NOT WANT, so getting the meds into these critters is like grabbing a running weedwhacker by the busy end.  Mrs. Wraith and I are going to spend the next couple of weeks looking like we've gone a few rounds with Edward Scissorhands.

Regarding that whole "settled science" thing

Over at Watt's Up With That, a spirited discussion of the Global Warming Climate Change Humans Are Earth-Raping Bastards subject is going on, with lots of insightful thoughts from people smarter than I, that you should all go read now.

First, a guest poster points out that ad-homenim attacks do not equate to 'settled science.'

Firstly, an amateur working as a clerk is just as able to present the truth as the most gifted professional. The truth is the truth no matter who presents it. The unwillingness of many main-stream “Climate Scientists” to engage with alternate viewpoints sets them apart from “Science”. To many the science is not settled, and needs a full open and honest public debate.

The comments in that post lead to another guest post regarding the nature of scientific theory itself(this is really cool, but it may take several read-throughs before it sinks in--at least, it did for me).

For the general public that does not have an objective scientific bend, how do you tell virtual reality from the real thing?

That’s a serious problem, actually. Hell, I have an objective scientific bend and I have plenty of trouble with it.
Ultimately, the stock answer is: We should believe the most what we can doubt the least, when we try to doubt very hard, using a mix of experience and consistent reason based on a network of experience-supported best (so far) beliefs.

Now, my own take on the matter, if you care what a dumb truck driver has to say about it. 

Frankly, anyone who utters the phrase "the science is settled," has proven themselves to be an absolute moron.  Science is never settled.  Science is the continuing process of analyzing and attempting to understand the nature of existence.  It means examining new evidence with an unprejudiced eye and following where it leads, regardless of whether the conclusions drawn are popular or not.

The science used to be "settled" that the Earth was flat, that evil spirits caused disease, that heavier-than-air flight was impossible, that man could never travel into space, that we could never break the speed of sound.  If we'd accepted that 'science' as being 'settled,' where would we be now?  Back in the Dark Ages, that's where, killing off all the cats because "they're Satan's minions that are spreading the Plague!  The science is settled!" ...completely ignorant of the fact that the cats were killing the rats and mice that were the real carriers.

No, folks, science is never settled.  God has created a truly awesome universe, with layers of complexity that we are only beginning to dimly comprehend.  To think we know everything is to set ourselves up for, at the least, disappointment.

Off topic, I'm starting to figure out how the quote button functions now.  A bit of a pain compared to how simple it used to be, but I'm making it work.

SarahPAC to HBO:

"Get bent."

That's the real Sarah Palin, y'all.

A new ticket for 2012

Whaddya think?

"If you have a nation of moral degenerates, all bets are off."

Yes, another Ann Barnhardt post in its entirety(until we can direct-link to her blog, I'll keep doing this).  If you'd rather hide your head in the sand and not comprehend how completely boned we are, just don't click the fold.

RIP, Andrew Breitbart

May the Lord bless and keep your soul, and be with your friends, family and fans in their time of grief.

I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, and—famously—I enjoy making enemies.

Three years ago, I was mostly a behind-the-scenes guy who linked to stuff on a very popular website. I always wondered what it would be like to enter the public realm to fight for what I believe in. I’ve lost friends, perhaps dozens. But I’ve gained hundreds, thousands—who knows?—of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night.
(An aside--Mr. Breitbart is only a year older than I, and likely in far better health.  It's not impossible that his death was, in fact, natural...but, in truth, it raises my eyebrows more than a bit.)
