@ MarkLevinShow - Bull without a horn; 45 without bullets; Paul Revere without a horse

Mark Levin to the GOP: I AM ONE INCH AWAY FROM LEAVING YOU!

My Dear Mark - For all my deep, deep appreciation for the work that you do, for what I personally learn from you, I must still say - it's time to s*** or get off the pot!

Thru how many years, how many elections, how many atrocities have you ranted and raved after the people have been screwed by our government - both parties?

Mark, we feel the same outrage that you do and believe me there are plenty of us in our own much smaller way ranting and raving, and it's great to have you validate what we are saying, feeling - but after all this time - it's time to take it further!

If you want to really make a difference, then do something besides just whining. I'm sorry, but that's all last night amounted to. If you left the Republican party, so would many others. Hopefully Rush and Hannity and a few others would follow suit. Follow the money! You know that one! Our government is still afraid of the people but truly - they are not afraid of whiners.

Connecting the dots of why there was so little voter fraud reported in November and why Hussein Obama and Holder are dousing the police with flames

Who is your daddy America? Your abusive daddy who demands that you shelter in place?

A week ago yesterday a co-worker and I were talking. I asked him if he had figured out why Hussein Obama and Holder are working so hard to make the police of America look bad/corrupt. It was a question I had no answer to.

Wednesday Rush had a conversation with a caller that I feel answers the question. Simply put, it is psychological warfare being used against America.

CALLER to Rush: Hey, you know, I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but doesn't it seem like all authority is being undermined? The CIA, the Secret Service, our police. At the beginning, it was the ATF. Where we going with this? Is the FBI next?

SEAL Team Six was a failure, you know, trying to get the guy back and killing the guy that was supposed to be released the next day. All our authority seems to be getting undermined during this administration.

RUSH: And do you think that this is purposeful?

CALLER: You know, I don't see why. Because if he undermines all the authority, what would he use for his authority? (This was my question too.)

RUSH: Oh, believe me, he's got plenty of power that he can project if he wants to. I think your way of describing this is intriguing.

Is Obama undermining all authority -- calling into question the moral and legal authority of, say, the police, the Secret Service, CIA? Clearly, a number of these institutions that are charged with protecting the public and defending property, public safety, are constantly under siege. Clearly they're under assault.

I think you have to look at this cumulatively, if you want to understand, if you are of the opinion that all of this authority is being undermined. If you take it all together as I say, cumulatively, you may have a point. Then you would have to ask, "Okay, why? Who benefits from that?

Who benefits from the CIA not being trusted? Who benefits from the cops being thought of as enemies? Who benefits from the FBI or any other law enforcement...? Who benefits from the Border Patrol being, for the most part, worthless?

Who benefits from all this?

I think to answer the question, you have to view the impact on people such as you. You've noticed it, and if you are thinking it and if you're asking about it, it's obviously harrowing. It's upsetting. It's frightening. If all of these institutions that are designed to defend and protect us are in the process of being undermined and rendered almost as engaging in criminal activity themselves... If they are not trusted or trustworthy, I think the overall impact that may be desired (if this is part of a plan) is to simply continue the whole assault on the psyche of the American people.

It's to create attitudes of utter futility and worthlessness and to make it appear that trying to stop this onslaught is pointless because there's no way we can, because every day there's something new. So the short is it could be... Well, it does. I think it's accomplishing it. I think it is reducing the spirit of a lot of people to object to it, and most people are now reaching a point where they're just trying to stay unaffected by it all.

They're just trying to stay out of the way. Don't do anything, say anything, go anywhere. Don't do anything where you might run into any of this. Just keep your distance, because all of these public institutions and government institution are under assault. There's no question about that. It's an interesting point, Keith, and I do think it has an overall psychological impact on people. It may not be something that they realize in the forefront like you have. It just may be a creeping, slowly evolving realization that people have.

Repeating myself - possibly there was very little voter fraud because the powers that be wanted Republicans to gain seats so that the People would feel that there would be hope, that we were reversing course, that Obamacare would be reversed and Amnesty would never happen.

Then, the Crimenabus. The psyops. Both the republicans and democrats squashed that hope with their blatant IN YOUR FACE show of power and disregard for what the people voted for. The disappointment, anger, frustration, would once and for all cause the people to know just exactly who the boss is, and it ain't the people!

Battlefield USA - Light Blogging

"Personally, I'm just not going to give a shit for a while. I may post here and there. But let's face it, it is the same old crap packaged in a different wrapper... day... after day... after day. I have a ton of stories in my bookmarks that I have been meaning to post... but really, what is the point.

Anyhow...

There are links over at the right. Use them."

And how does one just not give a shit for a while? I can't speak for Battlefield USA. Lord knows he has all but spilled his own blood trying to wake America up. The only, only thing that has stopped me thus far are two children who will outlive me and have to live in the holocaust to come - and before I escape this nightmare, I fully expect to hear them say - "Grandma, what did you do when the government began taking all of our freedoms away?"

Grumpy Elder - Obama and Boehner Join Forces to Sell Out America

Recently Lady Raven wrote Is there some reason we bothered going to the polls last month? This morning that seems like a really valid question. America's Conservatives just got Jonathon Gubered by the Republicans.. After a lot of big talk before the election most of them surrendered to Obama faster than you can say surrender. The cowards literally voted to make a Federal Crime, not a crime when it's committed by "The One"

United States immigration law makes it a federal crime for ANY PERSON to aid, abet or entice an illegal alien to enter or remain in the United States.. Obama's scheme to give work permits to illegals Aliens and promising they won't be subject to the law, is an obvious violation of the law. John Boehner and his republicans Congress just agreed to fund the crime..

Like most conservatives I thought we were voting to stop the unconstitutional and criminal acts of the most corrupt president in American History. While I expected the GOP to stab us in the back, they always do, I didn't expect it this quickly.. A a month ago John Boehner was promising to fight Obama's illegal amnesty "Tooth and Nail" . I guess Obama must have offered to buy Boehner a beer or something, because that promise became a lie the day after the election.

"Suddenly it all comes down, all at once. You see what you are, what you have done, or, more accurately, what you haven't done - for that was all that was required of most of us: that we do nothing."

"And one day, too late, your principles, if you were ever sensible of them, all rush in upon you. The burden of self-deception has grown too heavy, and some minor incident, in my case my little boy, hardly more than a baby, saying 'Jewish swine,' collapses it all at once, and you see that everything, everything, has changed and changed completely under your nose.

"What no one seemed to notice," said a colleague of mine, a philologist, "was the ever widening gap, after 1933, between the government and the people. Just think how very wide this gap was to begin with, here in Germany. And it became always wider."

"Each act, each occasion, is worse than the last..." (1)

"You see, one doesn't see exactly where or how to move. Believe me, this is true. Each act, each occasion, is worse than the last, but only a little worse. You wait for the next and the next. You wait for one great shocking occasion, thinking that others, when such a shock comes, will join with you in resisting somehow.

But the one great shocking occasion, when tens or hundreds or thousands will join with you, never comes. That's the difficulty. If the last and worst act of the whole regime had come immediately after the first and smallest, thousands, yes, millions would have been sufficiently shocked--if, let us say, the gassing of the Jews in '43 had come immediately after the 'German Firm' stickers on the windows of non-Jewish shops in '33.

But of course this isn't the way it happens. In between come all the hundreds of little steps, some of them imperceptible, each of them preparing you not to be shocked by the next. Step C is not so much worse than Step B, and, if you did not make a stand at Step B, why should you at Step C? And so on to Step D.

Martin Luther King, Jr vs Hussein Obama - Right vs Wrong


mlkonhitler.jpg

Today the Judas' in our government will betray the American people as the House will most likely approve the funding bill which will, amongst many other things, fund Obamacare and Amnesty for a year. The "soft" tyranny is not so soft any longer and history has a warning for us.

They Thought They Were Free

...But Then It Was Too Late.
The Germans, 1933-45
Milton Mayer
"What no one seemed to notice," said a colleague of mine, a philologist, "was the ever widening gap, after 1933, between the government and the people. Just think how very wide this gap was to begin with, here in Germany. And it became always wider. You know, it doesn't make people close to their government to be told that this is a people's government, a true democracy, or to be enrolled in civilian defense, or even to vote. All this has little, really nothing, to do with knowing one is governing.

"What happened here was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to being governed by surprise; to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if the people could not understand it, it could not be released because of national security. And their sense of identification with Hitler, their trust in him, made it easier to widen this gap and reassured those who would otherwise have worried about it.

"This separation of government from people, this widening of the gap, took place so gradually and so insensibly, each step disguised (perhaps not even intentionally) as a temporary emergency measure or associated with true patriotic allegiance or with real social purposes. And all the crises and reforms (real reforms, too) so occupied the people that they did not see the slow motion underneath, of the whole process of government growing remoter and remoter.

"You will understand me when I say that my Middle High German was my life. It was all I cared about. I was a scholar, a specialist. Then, suddenly, I was plunged into all the new activity, as the university was drawn into the new situation; meetings, conferences, interviews, ceremonies, and, above all, papers to be filled out, reports, bibliographies, lists, questionnaires. And on top of that were the demands in the community, the things in which one had to, was 'expected to' participate that had not been there or had not been important before. It was all rigmarole, of course, but it consumed all one's energies, coming on top of the work one really wanted to do. You can see how easy it was, then, not to think about fundamental things. One had no time."

"Those," I said, "are the words of my friend the baker. 'One had no time to think. There was so much going on.'"

"Your friend the baker was right," said my colleague. "The dictatorship, and the whole process of its coming into being, was above all diverting. It provided an excuse not to think for people who did not want to think anyway. I do not speak of your 'little men,' your baker and so on; I speak of my colleagues and myself, learned men, mind you. Most of us did not want to think about fundamental things and never had. There was no need to. Nazism gave us some dreadful, fundamental things to think about--we were decent people--and kept us so busy with continuous changes and 'crises' and so fascinated, yes, fascinated, by the machinations of the 'national enemies,' without and within, that we had no time to think about these dreadful things that were growing, little by little, all around us. Unconsciously, I suppose, we were grateful. Who wants to think?

"To live in this process is absolutely not to be able to notice it--please try to believe me--unless one has a much greater degree of political awareness, acuity, than most of us had ever had occasion to develop. Each step was so small, so inconsequential, so well explained or, on occasion, 'regretted,' that, unless one were detached from the whole process from the beginning, unless one understood what the whole thing was in principle, what all these 'little measures' that no 'patriotic German' could resent must some day lead to, one no more saw it developing from day to day than a farmer in his field sees the corn growing. One day it is over his head.

"How is this to be avoided, among ordinary men, even highly educated ordinary men? Frankly, I do not know. I do not see, even now. Many, many times since it all happened I have pondered that pair of great maxims, Principiis obsta and Finem respice--'Resist the beginnings' and 'Consider the end.' But one must foresee the end in order to resist, or even see, the beginnings. One must foresee the end clearly and certainly and how is this to be done, by ordinary men or even by extraordinary men? Things might have. And everyone counts on that might.

"Your 'little men,' your Nazi friends, were not against National Socialism in principle. Men like me, who were, are the greater offenders, not because we knew better (that would be too much to say) but because we sensed better. Pastor Niemoller spoke for the thousands and thousands of men like me when he spoke (too modestly of himself) and said that, when the Nazis attacked the Communists, he was a little uneasy, but, after all, he was not a Communist, and so he did nothing; and then they attacked the Socialists, and he was a little uneasier, but, still, he was not a Socialist, and he did nothing; and then the schools, the press, the Jews, and so on, and he was always uneasier, but still he did nothing. And then they attacked the Church, and he was a Churchman, and he did something--but then it was too late."

"Yes," I said.

"You see," my colleague went on, "one doesn't see exactly where or how to move. Believe me, this is true. Each act, each occasion, is worse than the last, but only a little worse. You wait for the next and the next. You wait for one great shocking occasion, thinking that others, when such a shock comes, will join with you in resisting somehow. You don't want to act, or even talk, alone; you don't want to 'go out of your way to make trouble.' Why not?--Well, you are not in the habit of doing it. And it is not just fear, fear of standing alone, that restrains you; it is also genuine uncertainty.

"Uncertainty is a very important factor, and, instead of decreasing as time goes on, it grows. Outside, in the streets, in the general community, 'everyone' is happy. One hears no protest, and certainly sees none. You know, in France or Italy there would be slogans against the government painted on walls and fences; in Germany, outside the great cities, perhaps, there is not even this. In the university community, in your own community, you speak privately to your colleagues, some of whom certainly feel as you do; but what do they say? They say, 'It's not so bad' or 'You're seeing things' or 'You're an alarmist.'

"And you are an alarmist. You are saying that this must lead to this, and you can't prove it. These are the beginnings, yes; but how do you know for sure when you don't know the end, and how do you know, or even surmise, the end? On the one hand, your enemies, the law, the regime, the Party, intimidate you. On the other, your colleagues pooh-pooh you as pessimistic or even neurotic. You are left with your close friends, who are, naturally, people who have always thought as you have.

"But your friends are fewer now. Some have drifted off somewhere or submerged themselves in their work. You no longer see as many as you did at meetings or gatherings. Informal groups become smaller; attendance drops off in little organizations, and the organizations themselves wither. Now, in small gatherings of your oldest friends, you feel that you are talking to yourselves, that you are isolated from the reality of things. This weakens your confidence still further and serves as a further deterrent to--to what? It is clearer all the time that, if you are going to do anything, you must make an occasion to do it, and then you are obviously a troublemaker. So you wait, and you wait.

"But the one great shocking occasion, when tens or hundreds or thousands will join with you, never comes. That's the difficulty. If the last and worst act of the whole regime had come immediately after the first and smallest, thousands, yes, millions would have been sufficiently shocked--if, let us say, the gassing of the Jews in '43 had come immediately after the 'German Firm' stickers on the windows of non-Jewish shops in '33. But of course this isn't the way it happens. In between come all the hundreds of little steps, some of them imperceptible, each of them preparing you not to be shocked by the next. Step C is not so much worse than Step B, and, if you did not make a stand at Step B, why should you at Step C? And so on to Step D.

"And one day, too late, your principles, if you were ever sensible of them, all rush in upon you. The burden of self-deception has grown too heavy, and some minor incident, in my case my little boy, hardly more than a baby, saying 'Jewish swine,' collapses it all at once, and you see that everything, everything, has changed and changed completely under your nose. The world you live in--your nation, your people--is not the world you were born in at all. The forms are all there, all untouched, all reassuring, the houses, the shops, the jobs, the mealtimes, the visits, the concerts, the cinema, the holidays. But the spirit, which you never noticed because you made the lifelong mistake of identifying it with the forms, is changed. Now you live in a world of hate and fear, and the people who hate and fear do not even know it themselves; when everyone is transformed, no one is transformed. Now you live in a system which rules without responsibility even to God. The system itself could not have intended this in the beginning, but in order to sustain itself it was compelled to go all the way.

"You have gone almost all the way yourself. Life is a continuing process, a flow, not a succession of acts and events at all. It has flowed to a new level, carrying you with it, without any effort on your part. On this new level you live, you have been living more comfortably every day, with new morals, new principles. You have accepted things you would not have accepted five years ago, a year ago, things that your father, even in Germany, could not have imagined.

"Suddenly it all comes down, all at once. You see what you are, what you have done, or, more accurately, what you haven't done (for that was all that was required of most of us: that we do nothing). You remember those early meetings of your department in the university when, if one had stood, others would have stood, perhaps, but no one stood. A small matter, a matter of hiring this man or that, and you hired this one rather than that. You remember everything now, and your heart breaks. Too late. You are compromised beyond repair.

"What then? You must then shoot yourself. A few did. Or 'adjust' your principles. Many tried, and some, I suppose, succeeded; not I, however. Or learn to live the rest of your life with your shame. This last is the nearest there is, under the circumstances, to heroism: shame. Many Germans became this poor kind of hero, many more, I think, than the world knows or cares to know."

I said nothing. I thought of nothing to say.

"I can tell you," my colleague went on, "of a man in Leipzig, a judge. He was not a Nazi, except nominally, but he certainly wasn't an anti-Nazi. He was just--a judge. In '42 or '43, early '43, I think it was, a Jew was tried before him in a case involving, but only incidentally, relations with an 'Aryan' woman. This was 'race injury,' something the Party was especially anxious to punish. In the case at bar, however, the judge had the power to convict the man of a 'nonracial' offense and send him to an ordinary prison for a very long term, thus saving him from Party 'processing' which would have meant concentration camp or, more probably, deportation and death. But the man was innocent of the 'nonracial' charge, in the judge's opinion, and so, as an honorable judge, he acquitted him. Of course, the Party seized the Jew as soon as he left the courtroom."

"And the judge?"

"Yes, the judge. He could not get the case off his conscience--a case, mind you, in which he had acquitted an innocent man. He thought that he should have convicted him and saved him from the Party, but how could he have convicted an innocent man? The thing preyed on him more and more, and he had to talk about it, first to his family, then to his friends, and then to acquaintances. (That's how I heard about it.) After the '44 Putsch they arrested him. After that, I don't know."

I said nothing.

"Once the war began," my colleague continued, "resistance, protest, criticism, complaint, all carried with them a multiplied likelihood of the greatest punishment. Mere lack of enthusiasm, or failure to show it in public, was 'defeatism.' You assumed that there were lists of those who would be 'dealt with' later, after the victory. Goebbels was very clever here, too. He continually promised a 'victory orgy' to 'take care of' those who thought that their 'treasonable attitude' had escaped notice. And he meant it; that was not just propaganda. And that was enough to put an end to all uncertainty.

"Once the war began, the government could do anything 'necessary' to win it; so it was with the 'final solution of the Jewish problem,' which the Nazis always talked about but never dared undertake, not even the Nazis, until war and its 'necessities' gave them the knowledge that they could get away with it. The people abroad who thought that war against Hitler would help the Jews were wrong. And the people in Germany who, once the war had begun, still thought of complaining, protesting, resisting, were betting on Germany's losing the war. It was a long bet. Not many made it."
