“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”
–Winston S. Churchill
There was a time when a President, the military and the population of The United States (by and large) stood tall and fought for the rights and lives of others. World War Two would be a good example. Japan had taken much of the Far East, and Germany much of Europe, and parts of Africa.
And was systematically exterminating Jews, gypsys, cripples, intellectuals and homosexuals.
Now I’m not all about being the World’s policeman. I would much rather be isolationist and let the rest of the World solve her own problems. The problem with that ideal currently is radical Islamic fundamentalists have brought the battle to us. It’s not just about 9-11, it’s about England, Syria, Iraq, Egypt and Spain, and anywhere persons are being religiously persecuted to the extent they are being raped, burned alive and beheaded.
The Nazis didn’t start with thousands of death camps, train schedules, IBM tabulating machines, and giant crematoria. They started small and worked up. It wasn’t until Kristallnacht in November of 1938 that they got organized enough to kill 91 Jews at one time.
ISIS has kidnapped 90 Assyrian Christians this week. They beheaded 21 Christians last week. They’re a new government, recently formed. They’re starting small and already talking about working up.
We can wait. Unless some miracle happens, we will wait. But we shouldn’t expect the outcome to be anything other than the obvious. It’s the same evil manifesting itself under a new name.
It will be the Jews, the Christians, the homosexuals, the intellectuals, Muslims from different sects and any one who doesn’t go along. They will die, deaths by every mutilating, degrading means, wiped out along with the ideas, thoughts and dreams they had. They will be erased. And when it gets rolling, we will not be able to say we didn’t see it coming because they are proud of it and they are posting for the world to see. (WARNING! Graphic images). (Borepatch)
And our President claims it’s fundamentalist American Christians who are more dangerous than ISIS !
Now, I’m not a fan of those whack-jobs who protest at military funerals. Or their fellow travelers. And they claim to be fundamental Christians. They even announced a protest at Leonard Nimoy’s funeral!
But, I’ve not seen any of then burn someone alive or behead them on International television.
It’ll only get worse before it gets better.
And offering them employment isn’t the answer, Mr. President!
For years, it was pointed out that Richard Nixon believed he was an imperial president. He even made statements to the press in that regard.
And the Democrats ran with that.
And sometimes won.
Now, we have one of the current President’s closest advisors making this assertion…
Valerie Jarrett: Americans ‘hungry’ for Obama to act like an imperial president
With regard to the State Of The Union Address, Ms. Jarrett stated the following (in part):
On Tuesday, White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that Americans are “hungry” for Obama to take unilateral action, bypassing Congress wherever he can to get things done, CNS News reported.
“People around our country are hungry for action,” she said. “And what you’ll hear from the president tonight is going to be all about action — creating opportunity — and it’s going to be a very optimistic speech.”
According to Jarrett, Obama will “set forth very specific, concrete proposals that he thinks will move our country forward — create opportunity for hard-working Americans who want to succeed.”
Although Obama will prod Congress to act on his agenda, Jarrett said Obama “will make clear tonight that he will take action on his own,” bypassing Congress when he sees fit.
Can we invoke Nixon now?
I can only speak for me, but I don’t want a President from any party “bypassing Congress when he sees fit.”
I’m not that hungry.
(I believe the ‘and helpless’ part was photoshopped in, and unnecessary.)
Of course, they may be part of a conspiracy to lure in unwitting bank robbers to their death, but I doubt it.

Or simply Affirmative Action?
Bloomberg said that we should restrict guns to minorities. Then, he asked everyone not to release any video and they complied. But here’s the audio. (SayUncle)
The accompanying cutting, from today’s Mercury, serves to confirm that South Africa is indisputably on a Zimbabwe-style road to rack-and-ruin: Black ANC government ministers, including King Kong himself, regularly attend overseas’ business conferences to attract Overseas’ Investors. Any potential Investors must, however, be warned about the accompanying article and be warned about the treachery of our black leadership scum. Furthermore, I must remind potential investors about the perils of the ANC government’s racist Affirmative Action/Employment Equity, and BEE, regulations: inexperienced, poorly-educated, parasitical blacks must be given employment preference, irrespective of more competent, better-qualified Whites.
Stipulated minimum wages, furthermore, are proving to be very inflationary in the light of poor productivity. Similarly, Black Economic Empowerment is a situation in which politically-connected blacks get handed huge sums of cash, to start their own businesses, but these morons seem to think that “turnover is profit,” and spend everything on big homes, luxury vehicles and expensive clothes, etc. The BEE success rate is estimated to be less-than 10% but government continues with this drain on our fiscus!
A long story but l would certainly think twice before investing in this Gucci-Socialistic, crime-ridden country!
Focus on land reform
THE ANC is placing emphasis on the need to speed up land redistribution amid increasing pressure from opposition such as the EFF and Numsa. ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe said yesterday that the ruling party was calling for a cap on land…
Land redistribution? Sounds suspiciously like neighboring (communist dictatorship) Zimbabwe. And the preferential treatment for Blacks, regardless of ability, education. Sounds like racial quotas. In other words, racist.
I thought the ANC was bringing Heaven-On-Earth to the beleaguered ‘Republic’? Once the nasty White overlords were run out of office.
Substitute one evil for another. Yeah, that’ll work!
You know, I always admired Col. Cooper for his work with firearms. His world view, in spite of his Master’s Degree in history, not as much. But, he called it on the future of South Africa, 20 years ago!
h/t Brock Townsend
The President of The United States was too busy to march with the 40,000+ against terrorism in Paris, but…
He rushed off the funeral of the head of state of Saudi Arabia…
Please fill in the blanks for me.
Popular culture/media contends:
The President is not Muslim, nor is any President subservient to any foreign power or potentate.
Reportedly, we can obtain fossil fuels from Canada, Alaska, off our own shores (if the laws allowed it – but we allow Brazil to drill there!), but we must continue to go to a dicey part of the World and suck-up to ‘allies’ who support Wahhabism (Most of the guys did 9/11 were Saudi Wahhabis) to get their oil!
What’s up with THAT?
Inquiring minds want to know.
OH! A PREPPER!
Mad Ogre recently expounded upon the concept, not just of being a prepper, but of being a dark prepper.
c/o Uprising USA.
Here’s the plan.
1. Secure your HQ.
2. Secure your local area.
3. Secure your People. Your Friends, Family, Loved ones… Those that may need help. Elderly, Young, Infirm. Make sure everyone is okay and has what they need to survive.
Now here’s where it gets gnarly…
4. Secure additional assets and supplies to insure longevity. Food, Medicines, other supplies and equipment.
Now comes the Dark part.
Now where I differ from the truly Dark, is that I would not use force on those that have the assets we’d be looking for. Force would be only to defend. This is all pretty clearly laid out in Uprising USA. Moving further, in Uprising UK, there is a scene where assets were taken unknowingly from another survivor who hid when they came to get it. When it was discovered that someone had a claim of ownership to the property, the person was fairly and justly compensated for what had been taken and an amiable conclusion was reached.
So really, maybe, I am not a Dark Prepper. Just a humble procurer of that which sustains life… an amicable prepper. A beneficent prepper. A Magnanimous prepper…(end)
Are YOU prepping (in any sense of the word?) Are you a DARK prepper? How far are you willing to go to secure sustainability for you and your family and friends?
Or is this all just largely a mental
exercise masturbation, a self-stroking cycle of like-minded folk, who like to play in the netherworld of TEOTWAWKI*?
Or is this about reasonableness? Preparedness? For natural disaster, fire, earthquake, hurricane?
And perhaps even extreme political disaster – like the monetary system failing and/or martial law being imposed?
As for me, I cannot afford to prep, much. I was once – during Y2K. The lady I was seeing, and her son had supplies, and arms. And security. And nothing happened.
Since that time, I’ve become disabled, and had to sell stuff. And some of it was stolen.
But, I do have a couple firearms, and ammunition. I figure that’s a good start.
The question remains, am I a DARK PREPPER?
The future will tell.

The lovely and skilled Tamara reminded me, with this post:
That was educational…
Just got back from a trip with some friends to visit the Indiana State Museum. They have a great temporary exhibit there on Prohibition (you know, the thirteen year period in this country that created modern organized crime and from which we learned absolutely nothing?)
Check this out:
That’s the actual phone in question from Olmstead v. United States, the case where the Supreme Court decided 5-4 that listening in on a dude’s phone lines without a warrant to catch the guy incriminating himself somehow didn’t violate either the Fourth or Fifth Amendments.
Brock Townsend shares with us:
I came across this article today, entitled Are Militias a Menace? It mainly focuses on pro-government militias during times of civil war abroad, however, there are some very important takeaways from this article. To wit:
The distinction between “gang” and “militia” — ties with the government
Unlike rebels or criminals, whose actions are necessarily illegal and opposed by the state, these groups enjoy semi-official or informal ties with the government.
Liberal use of state-backed militias (i.e., “gangs”) to abuse the populace and disabuse themselves of the blame
Their statistical findings (published here and summarized here) show that the appearance of militias is strongly correlated with violations of human rights, particularly when governments want to maximize harm to civilians while minimizing blame for the action of armed groups that are, ostensibly, “free agents.”
In other words, the SPLC can s*** it!
And don’t even get me started on the Fast & Furious government-gang thing!
