Update: Hardly had the below been posted (an hour ago) when news breaks that as if the ammunition purchases below weren’t enough, yesterday the Department of Homeland (sounds rather similar to der Furher’s Fatherland, don’t you think?) Security purchased tens of millions more rounds of ammunition. See the request for bids HERE.
I knew this day would come. I wished for the best, but expected the worst.
For a couple of years now I have been warning everyone that Obama intended to end America as we know (or knew) it, and that he would follow the lead of his mentor Saul Alinsky and be willing to do whatever it takes…including seeing blood in the streets…to accomplish his goals. Those of us who saw this day coming were ridiculed and considered nut jobs…even my political videos on YouTube are called “The Tinfoil Hat Club…and all the while we kept shouting from the rooftops that Obama intended to assume dictatorial powers and change America into a communist…communist, not socialist…country.
He even told America that, if America had just listened. On October 31, 2008, just days before his election, he was speaking at the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri, and Obama said, near the beginning of his speech:
Sure, he didn’t give specifics. If he had he would have lost the election and he knew it…but he did tell us, if we had only listened. Instead…we slept.
During his first term he began his work to “fundamentally transform America. Call it what you like, but he nationalized the auto and banking industries, actually arranging to completely takeover General Motors…and we slept.
Under the Affordable Care Act, AKA Obamacare, he essentially has nationalized the country’s health care system, driving many doctors out of practice, causing many hospitals to stop offering essential services like delivering babies, has caused many Americans, and will cause many more, to lose private health insurance in favor of a government “one size fits all” plan provided, of course, by the government, and has placed the government firmly between patients and their doctors…and we slept.
We weren’t in the deep sleep we had been in for years while our rights and freedoms were slowly eroded and the Constitution trampled by both Republicans and Democrats…the tea party movement showed there were signs of an awakening America…but we were still asleep.
The Sandy Hook shooting and the progressives’ ramping up of their assault on the 2nd Amendment may have galvanized people more than any other single incident, especially coming soon after the Benghazi debacle, but its too soon to really tell if even that will stir people from their slumber.
This week’s news says that we damn well better wake up.
We better wake up NOW.
NBC News broke the story Monday that Obama’s minion Attorney General Eric Holder and Obama have decided that it is right and moral for the government to kill…to MURDER…American citizens, citizens who have not been charged with any crime, who are not suspected of having committed any crime, and who are not suspected of plotting any crime.
In other words, they feel the government has the authority to murder American citizens based on absolutely no evidence, no facts, that prove the person is a threat to America or its citizens. The government proved that the only threat to American citizens is the government itself.
The 16 page DOJ memo obtained by NBC News shows that the Obama administration has declared war…a SHOOTING WAR…on citizens of the United States that it disagrees with. The administration just told you and me that if we disagree with them they have the right to murder us, right here in our own homes…that they can send a drone to strike those THEY consider the enemy anywhere, anytime, for any reason they, the government, wants to.
And they have done it already, even before the memo was leaked.
American drones have killed dozens…scores…of people in the Middle East that were accused of terrorism. Three of those scores of people were United States citizens. One of them was a 16 year old child who was born in Denver, Colorado…and that child was not “collateral damage”…he was targeted for murder by the United States government, by the Obama administration.
We…and I DO mean “we”, you and I, as in this country “we” ARE the government, or are supposed to be…WE now murder children intentionally. Children accused of nothing. Children indicted for nothing. Children for whom there is no evidence, no proof, that they are doing or have done a damn thing wrong.
Arguments will be made…I’m sure they already have by the administration’s defenders…that the child in question was a terrorist and that he was in Afghanistan, not the United States, that he somehow “had it coming”, and that something like that wouldn’t…couldn’t…happen on American soil because the military is constitutionally prohibited from operating against Americans on American soil.
To the first…”He had it coming”…we need to really ask ourselves what kind of people we are. Despite any suspicions there was absolutely NO evidence, NO proof, that he had committed any acts of terrorism, yet he was MURDERED at the direction, some might say at the whim, of a president that sees himself as omnipotent, infallible, messianic. (It could be argued that elitist, narcissistic, and arrogant would be far more accurate.)
Is that the country we have become? If so, we aren’t worth saving.
To the second point, that the Constitution forbids the use of the United States military against American citizens on American soil, you have to ask yourself, “Would Obama, COULD Obama, subvert the Constitution if it served his purpose to do so?” The answer is plain…he already has, and if he’s done it once, he’ll do it again and damn the consequences.
- He overstepped his authority when he ordered a private company that it must give away for free a service that his own HHS secretary has called a major financial burden. Charles Krauthammer, in the Washington Post on February 16, 2011, asks:
“Where does it say that a president can unilaterally order a private company to provide an allegedly free-standing service at no cost to certain select beneficiaries?”
He is speaking of birth control, which is NOT a health issue (even if mandated health care is constitutional…doubtful at best) but an issue of facilitating recreational rather than procreational sex. If the government has the right to tell an employer that it must pay for safeguards for an employee’s recreation, does that mean that an employee that races cars for fun can demand his employer pay for his fire suit and helmet?
- Obama overstepped his authority by activating the Dream Act, legislation that was rejected by Congress. The president has no authority under the Constitution to legislate unilaterally, bypassing our Constitution’s separation of powers and system of checks and balances. Legislation MUST be passed by Congress and the president can then sign or veto it, but he cannot enact it out of whole cloth.
- Obama exceeded his Constitutional authority when he deemed Congress to be in recess, when it wasn’t, in order to make recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board, appointments that Seanate Republicans would have scuttled, according to a Federal Court decision according to the NY Times.
Obviously Obama considers the Constitution an impediment to his job, not a guide, and will take whatever means he can get away with to circumvent it. Remember, he is a Saul Alinsky acolyte, a man who will follow Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” which include the admonition that the end justifies the means…ANY means…including blood in the streets.
All Obama thinks he needs is a crack, a tiny crack, and he will try to usurp as much power as possible, including the power to use American troops against American citizens on American soil…and Congress, on both sides of the aisle, has given him that crack through the 2012 NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act), an annual bill that provides funding for our troops…plus some extraneous amendments, of course. According to the ACLU, an organization FAR from supporting conservatives:
In December 2011, President Obama signed the 2012 NDAA, codifying indefinite military detention without charge or trial into law for the first time in American history. The NDAA’s dangerous detention provisions would authorize the president — and all future presidents — to order the military to pick up and indefinitely imprison people captured anywhere in the world, far from any battlefield. note: emphasis added by author
Anywhere in the world, folks…”the world” includes the United States and Obama has proven he has no problem with ignoring little inconveniences like a Constitutional restriction on the use of the military against US citizens on US soil.
Here’s another notice from the tinfoil hat wearers like myself, folks…in many cases Obama has no intention of “picking up” his detractors, as the NDAA allows. The whole point of the DOJ memo that was leaked the other day is to justify Obama not having to deal with details like where and how to “detain” those who oppose him…the memo trys to give legal cover for just killing…MURDERING…citizens who disagree with his policies, much the same as Pol Pot, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Che, Castro, Chavez, and a whole host of others.
I know, I know…only a nut job would believe that…right?
Well then, I’ll wear my Tinfoil Hat proudly, but before people…sheeple…dismiss us tinfoil hat wearers out of hand, consider these facts and come up with another plausible reason for them:
- The Department of Homeland Security – In March of 2012, ATK, an ammunition manufacturer in Minnisota, was given a purchase order for 450,000,000 rounds of .40 cal semi-jacketed hollow point ammunition. This was followed in April by a purchase of an additional 750,000,000 rounds of assorted ammunition, including .357 cal semi-jacketed hollow points, as can be seen in this solicitation for bid by the government.
- The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration – NOAA put out a solicitation for bids on 46,000 rounds of .40 semi-jacketed hollow point ammo on August 9, 2012. (this solicitation for bids and two others). I suppose weathermen get their predictions (gusses?) wrong so often, ruining so many weekend plans, they feel the need to be protected. Incidentally, NOAA later claimed the ammo wasn’t really for the weathermen, it was for the NOAA Fisheries Office. Now…doesn’t that make you feel better?
- The Social Security Administration – On August 7, 2012, the SSA put out a solicitation for bids for 174,000 rounds of semi-jacketed hollow point ammunition.
Three governmental agencies…domestic government agencies. Three agencies that have absolutely no jurisdiction outside of the United States. Three agencies whose need for ammunition is questionable in the first place, and who would only have the opportunity to use the ammunition inside our borders. Three agencies whose ammunition orders in a 6 month period total enough ammunition to put not one, not two, but over 4.5 bullets in the head of each and every man, woman, and child in the United States. Three agencies whose ammunition orders total more than all o0f the ammunition used by the United States military in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Three agencies ordering ammunition that has been declared inhumane and illegal for use on the battlefield.
One question: Why?
Of course, the discussion was about drones, right? What do drones have to do with Homeland Security buying lots and lots of bullets? Well, every good plan has a backup, a Plan B.
The problem with a potential plan to quell an insurrection by Americans against a tyrannical government by using the military is twofold. First the tyrant, Obama in this case, has to wonder if American troops…our sons and daughters, our husbands and wives, or brothers and sisters, aunts, uncles, friends, neighbors, and fellow church members, would ever fire on their own people if given such an order, or would they refuse such an unconstitutional order by an out-of-control Commander in Chief. I believe the answer is No!
Second, if they DID follow such an order a quote falsely attributed to Admiral Yamamoto of the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II would apply. “An invasion of mainland America is impossible. It would be met by an American with a rifle behind every blade of grass.” The Admiral never said it, but its true, and would apply today if the enemy, like Obama, was from within.
A Plan B war against American citizens, a shooting war with dead bodies that Obama has already started, a war fought with drones on the tyrant’s side, would take care of both of those problems.
“…an American with a rifle behind every blade of grass.” is not a problem with drones. Americans aren’t allowed to own weapons that can effectively take out a drone.
It would not matter if the average serviceman would fire on his fellow citizens if ordered by an out of control Obama…a drone campaign would not be fought by an “average serviceman”. It would not involve an infantryman walking down Main Street, USA and having to decide to kill a neighbor or friend, to see a brother’s blood and guts spilled across the road, to see the local shop owner’s head explode from the impact of a round.
A drone war would be fought from a bunker, deep under Kansas, by some kid raised on violent video games, a kid looking not at real people, but “game” characters on a video screen…a kid whose “recreation” has been video war games that, according to one general whose job it is to train Special Ops soldiers, are more realistic than the training video “games” used to train the Special Ops folks for the real thing.
That kid flying the drone? You won’t be human to him…you’ll be just another character in a video game.
The Second American Revolution…a shooting revolution…has begun, with Obama firing the first shot, making the first real, blood in the street, kills. He won’t win though. Even with drones, Yamamoto might have been right.
President Obama…you fired the first shot. I asssure you though…you won’t fire the last.
