‘Speak-o’ the devil! ‘It’s. The. Law.’ gets a much-needed rewrite

Jonathan Gruber’s penchant for “speak-os” is threatening to undo much of the Dems’ hard work trying to make Obamacare look rock-solid. Might be time for them to update their go-to slogan:

That’s far more accurate, no?

HERO STUFF: Doctor Blows Off ‘Gun Free’ Rule, Shoots Killer In Hospital Shooting Rampage

Thank God the good doctor had a gun and was able to dispatch this lunatic.  Can you imagine what would’ve happened if the doc wasn’t armed?  Remember, when seconds count, police are minutes away.

A Pennsylvania doctor is being hailed a hero today after he seriously injured a patient who went on a shooting spree in his office.

Dr. Lee Silverman, a psychiatrist, told police that the patient, identified as Richard Plotts, fatally shot a caseworker at their hospital complex before the doctor pulled out his own gun and exchanged fire with him and wounded him, a prosecutor said Thursday night.

Silverman was grazed in the temple during the gunfight in his office, according to Delaware District Attorney Jack Whelan.

Yeadon Police Chief Donald Molineux said that ‘without a doubt, I believe the doctor saved lives.’

‘Without that firearm, this guy (the patient) could have went out in the hallway and just walked down the offices until he ran out of ammunition,’ the chief said.

Whelan identified the caseworker killed Thursday afternoon at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital as Theresa Hunt, 53.

Suicidal Veterans: The Ongoing Legacy of the American Wars

If Veteran Affairs can’t help people with physical visible diseases, then I don’t know what help can be expected by suicidal veterans But the number of those who have contemplated suicide is alarming. They need help.

According to the Christian Science Monitor:

Nearly half of all veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan know at least one fellow US troop who has attempted suicide, and 40 percent know someone who has died by suicide, warns a survey released Thursday by the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA).

The largest nongovernmental survey of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans found that much has improved in America’s care of its veterans, says Tom Tarantino, IAVA’s policy director. Yet there are plenty of challenges that remain – and notable gaps in data nationwide. For example, “We still don’t know how many veterans are alive in this country,” notes Mr. Tarantino, a former US Army captain.

The IAVA survey offers a window into the priorities of the veterans of America’s most recent wars. The survey exclusively sought out combat veterans, who were required to provide proof of their deployments to Iraq or Afghanistan – or both – in order to take the survey. 

The roughly 2,000 veterans who completed the questionnaire reported that their number one concern is “the crisis with suicide.” 

More than half of all respondents – 53 percent – say that they have a mental health injury, and nearly one third of all veterans said that they themselves have considered taking their own life since joining the military.

I don’t know what we can do to help these people, and even if I did, I have doubts that I could trust the government to do the right thing. But perhaps this is time for us to think about why our nation called on these men and women to pay such a high price.

Look at Afghanistan and Iraq now and tell me any of it was worth this.

And yet I turned on Fox News today and heard President Barack Obama criticized for not “making the case to the American people” for getting involved in the Ukraine… Of course the same thing will be said next week for Syria, Iraq (again!), Iran, or some other place.

If my choice is between a President who plays golf and a President who does his “job” of convincing the American people to risk wars overseas, I’ll take the lazy, unengaged, golf player.

I would completely understand using our military to stop drug cartels and human traffickers coming into our country from Mexico. That would be a real use of the military for national protection. But putting people in insane circumstances on the other side of the planet for some irrationally wide definition of “the national interest” should be considered a crime.

Our troops deserve better than that.

Minuteman Militia Project Recruiting 3,500 Volunteers to Patrol US Border

In a post at MinutemanProject.com titled Operation Normandy, co-founder of the Minuteman Project Jim Gilchrist called for recruitments for groups of militias, as well as non-militia volunteers to participate in helping to secure the United States southern border.

According to the post:

The Minuteman Project’s “Operation Normandy” has been launched as of 1200 hours Monday, July 7. This event will dwarf the original Minuteman Project of 2005. I expect at least 3,500 non-militia volunteers to participate, plus uncounted groups of militias from all over the country.

If you are familiar with the Normandy invasion of France in 1944, then you have an idea how large and logistically complicated this event will be. However, there is one difference. We are not going to the border to invade anyone. We are going there to stop an invasion.

Our federal, state, and community governments have failed to address and fix this calamity. In the spirit of our nation’s Founding Fathers, it is once again time to bring unprecedented national awareness to the decades-long illegal alien crisis jeopardizing the United States.

PARTICIPATION IS OPEN TO EVERYONE AND THERE IS ONLY ONE RULE:  WHATEVER YOU DO, STAY WITHIN THE RULE OF LAW.

It will take 10 months to recruit, organize, and launch this event, and it will cover the porous areas of the 2,000-mile border from San Diego, Ca. to Brownsville, Texas.

Earlier in July, Gilchrist was interviewed by KPHO. While he has faced a myriad of critics, who have claimed that his plan will create more problems than it solves, Gilchrist responded, “Our federal government especially has failed us.”

“We’re trying to recruit thousands of people to cover the porous border areas from San Diego to Brownsville, Texas,” Gilchrist said.

Previously, many of those that participated in the previous border security campaign were branded as vigilantes, but Gilchrist says that things should be down legally and lawfully.

“The rule of law means you do not put a hand on anyone. You do not talk to anyone. You do not confront anyone. You report to Border Patrol,” Gilchrist said.

CBS 5 – KPHO

According to Gilchrist, those who choose to participate will not be operating under the banner of the Minuteman Project, but will simply be exercising their constituional rights. Obviously many of these will be armed. This is where many people get concerned. The only cause this author has for concern is if people don’t know what they are doing with their weapon. Then they become a danger to themselves and everyone around them. Other than that, there shouldn’t be a problem.

At the end of June, militia gathered near the Texas border in order to repel the invasion of illegal immigrants coming across the border. Earlier this month, they set up a command center. It appears that they will be receiving plenty of support from the Minuteman Project.

Lawmaker: BLM ‘completely insane’ on Bundy standoff

(Las Vegas Review-Journal) Republican lawmakers on Thursday criticized the Bureau of Land Management’s handling of the April standoff with Clark County rancher Cliven Bundy, saying tensions could have been eased by local authorities rather than the BLM’s use of heavily armed agents.

“Whether Bundy was right or wrong, was the BLM’s response reasonable? Anyone watching that unfolding fiasco can answer it was completely insane,” said Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Calif., who added that guns should be taken out of the hands of federal land managers.

Police departments are acquiring major battlefield equipment that emboldens officials to strong-arm those they should be protecting. “Police State USA: How Orwell’s Nightmare is Becoming our Reality” (Autographed) chronicles how we got to this point.

Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah, said photos of combat-uniformed and heavily armed agents crouched behind utility vehicles looked like they were taken in Afghanistan or Iraq rather than the American West. He said it was part of a troubling pattern of non-law enforcement agencies having SWAT-like units armed like “the tip of the spear.”

Obamacare architect admits in 2012 that subsidies were limited to state-run exchanges

Reason.com Thursday night is reporting on a YouTube find by Ryan Radia at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, “a libertarian think tank which has participated in the legal challenge to the IRS rule allowing subsidies in federal exchanges.”

The video shows Jonathan Gruber, one of the architects of Obamacare, saying “exactly what challengers to the administration’s implementation of the law have been arguing — that if a state chooses not to establish its own exchange, then residents of those states will not be able to access Obamacare’s health insurance tax credits.”

Shameful! President, Snoop Dogg and Pot in White House

snoop dogg

snoop dogg

Is America shamed by a presidential pothead supporting top executive who invites a weed head Snoop Dogg into the people’s house to smoke marijuana in the White House? Of course the answer would be yes if this was any presidential administration where morality and impact of one’s leadership was of serious concern. But according to Fox News, Snoop Dogg admitted “I smoked weed in the bathroom at the White House,” sends not even a smidgen of remorse from him, as if it were an accepted common practice. Americans of moral conscience know this.

For the nation, this is a telling time, not just for the welfare and safety of America, but it also showcases how far the nation’s presidency has been scuttled by the man who had been anointed by the mainstream media as the new leader for the nation. Weed is illegal according to federal law, and yet, the dope- smoking admitted pot head entertainer, enjoys a laugh with late night entertainer Jimmy Kimmel as if it is expected behavior.

What then is the message for your children or your nephews or nieces or even grandchildren? Is this the same conduct that dilutes their sense of right and wrong because smoking dope appears alright in the White House? After all, the leader of the free world has admitted to smoking pot and even mentioned in January this year, “I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol,” reported USA Today.

There is a troubling movement in the nation that even worried the founding fathers who understood the necessity to be guided by the reverence and wisdom of a God in Heaven who guided them in the constructing of an America built upon biblical principles.

This nation grew up and it prospered under those religious tenets that were embraced by parents, children and leaders in schools, in public meetings and yes even in the public square. It is also why those like the Obama-type followers hold religious principles of the Bible with such disdain. Their purposeful threats and mockery of God and of Christ has grown in action and strength since the early 20th century. This included attacking the Pledge of Allegiance in schools in 1943’s U.S. Supreme case West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette.

The major legal nail in the coffin was administered in two high court decisions including 1962’s Engel v. Vitale and more famous 1963 Murray v. Curlett School Prayer.  In the latter case this vicious attack on school prayer was led by Madalyn Murray O’Hair, a militant, left-wing atheist with extremely close ties to the American Communist Party.

From that point onward, the war against God in America was framed and embraced by liberals and atheism grew as a battle cry for socialists, like American bred anarchist Saul Alinsky. This forewarning was even acknowledged by Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart, who blasted the school prayer ruling saying, “It led not to true neutrality with respect to religion, but to the establishment of a religion of secularism.”

President Reagan spoke eloquently and forcefully about an America that abandons God by stressing in a 1984 speech, “Without God democracy cannot and will not long endure. If we ever forget that we are One Nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”

By 2014, it has now become fashionable and tolerated that a Snoop Dogg can show such disrespect and arrogance that he can freely admit to committing a federal crime by smoking pot in the White House and there is no negative reaction from Americans or outrage from Obama.

America is at a tipping point and cannot be made up of people simply waiting to see what will happen next to America. The future outcome is now in the center of the American Arena that President Theodore Roosevelt spoke of. It is in this arena that patriots must take a stand and say a resounding no to the Snoop Dogg’s of America. Say no to those like him who reject this America, which is rich in Biblical practice and embodied in the core and fabric with a moral certitude which shall not perish.

President Jefferson spoke of this in stating, “God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever.”

You, and your brother and sister, neighbor, friend and fellow parishioner are all patriots that must rise to help restore honor, respect and most importantly biblical principles once esteemed by the office of the presidency and practiced within the people’s house.

This is the time when a thug-like, dope smoking entertainer must and should be called before the well deserved justice of the court for not just dishonoring America’s house, but for criminal actions that are contemptible. It is these actions that poison the sacrifice of past generations, and contaminate future generations of America.

Shame may have been brought upon America by this president and his pot smoking entertainment industry confederates, but as it infers in the Bible, this time too shall pass. With renewed effort practiced in the heart of every patriot, there will be a reemergence and resilience woven from the fabric of new patriotism given life in the spirit and heart of America’s Heartland.

2 Corinthians 4:18: “So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.”

The Definition of Terrorist Expanding Under Barack Obama

The definition of terrorist is much like the definition of “criminal” in relation to the political class: they have a motive to enlarge it.

No one described this fact more dramatically than Ayn Rand in her novel, Atlas Shrugged, where she has a government bureaucrat lecture CEO and entrepreneur Hank Reardon:

“Did you really think we want those laws observed?” said Dr. Ferris. “We want them to be broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against… We’re after power and we mean it… There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted and you create a nation of law-breakers… and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Reardon, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.”

As beneficial as it is for the government to make people into criminals (which they do all the time!) there are some constitutional provisions that frustrate them from exercising the power they want. The category of “terrorist” or even “suspected terrorist” opens an entire new field of “extra constitutional” power for them to use on such people. So they have every incentive to expand that definition (as well as keep it murky so no one can be sure who gets defined as one).

Thus, the Daily Caller reports:

A copy of the National Counterterroism Center’s Watchlisting Guidance report from March 2013 shows a dramatic expansion in the criteria used to target potential terrorist suspects under the Obama administration — a system which “requires neither ‘concrete facts’ nor ‘irrefutable evidence,’” according to The Intercept.

The first thing to note about the government’s definition is that it is not a secret officially, except that it is. The government doesn’t want you to know how they define a terrorist, and thus mark a person for extensive spying and harassment.

The list is distributed throughout the intelligence community as a uniform standard for designating suspects, and though it is unclassified, its secrecy has been guarded by both the Bush and Obama administrations. Just last month Attorney General Eric Holder brought the criteria under the state secrets privilege in order to prevent them from being disclosed in a legal challenge against an American placed on the list — a designation that can bar suspects from flying and leave them open to prosecution for minor offenses.

In his argument Holder described the list as a “clear roadmap” of the U.S. intelligence terrorist-tracking system, and that revealing the list to the public “could cause significant harm to national security.”

Yes, this is the same Eric Holder who can’t sleep at night because he worries about domestic terrorism… or how he can produce more domestic terrorists.

holder-guns

This has been going on for years and years and I have to assume, since it is “distributed throughout the intelligence community” that our “watchdog media” had no interest in finding out about it. Obviously, it shouldn’t be that hard to get a leaker somewhere in the country.

The second thing to note about the government’s definition, is that it depends on virtually no standards of evidence.

Standards for making the list reportedly fall significantly below average law enforcement criteria necessary for arousing “reasonable suspicion.” Suspected terrorists’ families can be added to the list regardless of a lack of individual suspicion, and any known associates with ”a possible nexus” to terrorism can also be watchlisted.

The White House can additionally authorize a “threat-based expedited upgrade” — a loophole around reasonable suspicion that bumps the threat elevation of entire categories of listed suspects onto no-fly lists, and qualify them for increased scrutiny at border crossings and airports for up to a month based on “fragmentary information.”

What a great country we live in.
