Insurgency 101 For Obama Opponents

Obama Forward SC 690x1024 Insurgency 101 for Obama Opponents

Americans who are opposed to Barack Obama should be facilitating his policies, not resisting them.

It is not as illogical a course of action as it might first appear.

Many Americans now realize that Obama is the nation’s first openly illegal President and unindicted felon. He has reigned over a lawless administration; and in November 2012, Obama stole the Presidential election through voter fraud. The US Government is presently occupied and supported by individuals who are intent on destroying our Constitutional republic and our liberty.

Yet nothing is done by any elected official or law enforcement agency.

It should be now obvious that there are no fair elections, there is no rule of law, there are no means to petition elected officials or the courts for the redress of grievances, and there is no free press to challenge governmental abuse.

In other words, all traditional avenues to fight political corruption have been blocked.

The chaos that will inevitably occur through the implementation of Obama’s policies will provide the environment for an insurgency to grow, which will eventually enable the removal of those who have perverted the Constitution and flouted the rule of law, including Republicans.

Army Field Manual 3-24 defines one type of insurgency as an organized, protracted politico-military struggle designed to weaken an occupying power, theoretically the Obama regime.

Any country ruled by a small group without broad, popular participation by its citizens provides a political cause for an insurgency. It is an axiom of unconventional warfare that insurgents succeed with chaos and disorder appearing anywhere. The regime fails unless it maintains a degree of order everywhere.

For example, insurgents could help Obama exhaust the federal government by legally applying for every possible government benefit (such as food stamps, student loans, and a maximum use of government-funded healthcare) and overwhelming federal agencies with a multitude of questions, requests, and complaints regarding its services. By withholding income tax payments to the last possible legal moment, insurgents could help starve the regime of the funds needed to satisfy Obama supporters’ ever-increasing demands for free handouts.

The regime maintains its control through a central leadership, a political cadre composed of Democrats and the mainstream media and auxiliary facilitators such as labor unions, Islamic organizations, racist black nationalists, radical left-wing New Media outlets, and a collection of prominent leftist financial supporters and celebrities.

The cadre forms the political core of the Obama regime. They are actively engaged in the struggle to accomplish its goals. The cadre implements guidance and procedures provided by the regime leaders.  As organizations, they are not, however, initially susceptible to direct assault.

The auxiliary facilitators are active followers who provide important support services. In the early stages of an insurgency, these organizations and individuals are the most vulnerable. It is important to discredit or eliminate that support structure to provide a point of attack against the political cadre and drive a wedge of embitterment between the regime and the Obama voters.

The strategic end state of such an insurgency is the restoration of the Constitution and the rule of law. The operational objectives involve taking such actions to undermine the illegitimate regime and progressively establishing the desired end state. The tactical objectives, both psychological and political, encompass the immediate aims of independent local insurgent cells responding to targets of opportunity, which taken together support the strategic end state.

In the lawless Obama era, turmoil can become a patriot’s most effective weapon.

Let The Second American Revolution Begin – Divide California

California 2002 counties Let the Second American Revolution Begin – Divide California

The rule of law is not optional. Liberty is not negotiable.

In January 2009, Barack Obama was inaugurated as the nation’s first openly illegal President and unindicted felon. Since then, he has reigned over a lawless administration; and in November 2012, Obama stole the Presidential election through voter fraud. In addition to the thousands of other reported voter “irregularities,” Cuyahoga County (Cleveland), Ohio managed to produce statistical impossibilities. In five precincts, Romney got zero votes; in twelve precincts, Romney got exactly one vote in each precinct; and in eight precincts, Romney got exactly two votes in each of those precincts.

Yet the criminal conspiracy known as the Democrat and Republican parties and their propaganda machine, the mainstream media, remains silent because the truth would destroy the corrupt status quo and eradicate those parasites from the body politic.

There is no American republic if the electoral process has been compromised, if the Constitution is ignored, and if there is no means to petition elected officials or the courts for the redress of grievances.

Without any legal recourse remaining, only rebellion can preserve liberty.

California is the poster child for the failed economic and social policies represented by Obama and the far left-wing-dominated Democrat Party that is sucking the lifeblood out of American society. Creating a new Constitutionally-based state composed of conservative California counties will drive a stake into the heart of the extremist, anti-American, brain-dead, Democrat carcass.

A July 2012 report by the State Budget Crisis Task Force paints a chilling picture of major threats to fiscal sustainability, including out-of-control Medicaid spending, reductions in federal state-aid, underfunded state retirement plans, an eroding tax base, and laws that allow states like California to use gimmicks to hide their fiscal troubles.

For example, under current actuarial assumptions, pension funds are underfunded by approximately $1 trillion. Despite that shortfall, California and other states have continued to sweeten pension benefits, some retroactively. California’s unfunded liability, based on the current market value of its fund’s assets, is the largest in the country: $135.8 billion.

In perhaps another Democrat-and union-rigged election (who votes in favor of tax increases?), the passage of Proposition 30, which created the highest state income tax in the nation, set off euphoria and expectations of higher spending for public employees. State bureaucrats immediately ramped up deficit spending far beyond the state’s $6 billion annual tax increase. Democrats thought they could hammer “the rich” with Proposition 30. It now appears, however, that high income earners have already “voted with their feet” by moving themselves and their businesses out of state, resulting in a $1 billion-plus shortfall in corporate and income taxes and the beginning of a new financial crisis. California State Controller John Chiang announced that total state revenue for the month of November 2012 fell $806.8 million, or 10.8%, below budget.

At the same time, the Democrat-led California government continues to be plagued by scandals. In July 2012, Democrat lawmakers gave raises worth $4.6 million annually to more than 1,000 of their aides before cutting the pay of most other state workers. While calling for tax increases allegedly to support schools via Proposition 30, Democrat Governor Jerry Brown supported a questionable $68 billion high-speed rail project and apparently was totally unaware of $54 million in hidden state money within the state Department of Parks and Recreation.

For the survival of California and, by extension, the country, it is time to put an end to Democrat incompetence and profligacy. It is time to create a new state from the residents of thirty-seven of the fifty-eight California counties, who espouse more conservative principles than those of the radical left populations of the Los Angeles and San Francisco areas.

The new state will operate according to strict adherence to the U.S. Constitution (in particular the 10th Amendment) and maintain a balanced budget. It will promote small government, low taxes, energy independence, entrepreneurship, individual liberty, and personal responsibility. The new state will enforce immigration laws, equal opportunity, English as the official language, term limits for elected officials, and secure its border with Mexico.

We are at a historical crossroad. The corruption and criminality in government is now unprecedented. The greedy financiers, the corrupt politicians, and the dishonest press are all leading our country down a path to national suicide. They must be stopped at all costs.

Start by liberating California.

Will An Obama Victory Spark A Civil War In The US?

Obama Forward SC 690x1024 Will an Obama victory spark a civil war in the US?

America is on the verge of fragmentation and civil conflict because its citizens have lost control of their government and lost faith in its political institutions.

Nineteenth century political satirist Ambrose Bierce once described Washington D.C. as a strife of interests masquerading as a contest of principles and the conduct of public affairs for private advantage.

Indeed. Not much has changed one hundred years on.

The August 27, 2012  Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just eight percent (8%) of likely voters think that the US Congress is doing a good job.

Most Americans agree that the Democrat and Republican establishments are infested by individuals whose allegiance is not to their country, but to themselves and their political party. Their aim is to be unconstrained by the Constitution and the rule of law and unaccountable to the American people. Their conduct is driven by political expediency and winning elections for the sole purpose of obtaining power and profit.

The US has elections, but it no longer has representative government. The US has a free press, but one that is partisan and dishonest.

The Code of Ethics of the Society of Professional Journalists states:

Public enlightenment is the forerunner of justice and the foundation of democracy. The duty of the journalist is to further those ends by seeking truth and providing a fair and comprehensive account of events and issues. Conscientious journalists from all media and specialties strive to serve the public with thoroughness and honesty. Professional integrity is the cornerstone of a journalist’s credibility.

The reality of American journalism bears no resemblance to that official portrait.

Most Americans agree that the mainstream media represented by ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and the liberal newspapers are little more than propaganda machines for the Democrat Party and are distorting the news in an attempt to manipulate public opinion to support the reelection of Barack Obama.

Few American institutions remain untouched by political corruption.

Through the blatant careerism of senior officers like the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, even the American military has been politicized to further the goals of the Obama Administration by submitting to the agenda of radical Islam, attempting to suppress free speech, and undermining public trust in the military by allowing active duty personnel in uniform to engage in partisan politics through their participation in a gay pride parade.

The real issue of the 2012 election is the endemic corruption in the federal government perpetrated by a permanent political class, financed by crony capitalism and facilitated by a fawning media (“It’s the corruption, stupid”).

They have brought us to the brink of bankruptcy, have opened our borders to illegal immigration, and have permitted a fifth column promoting Sharia law to infiltrate our society and judicial system.

Most Americans agree that there are anti-democratic and anti-American forces working aggressively inside the government and country to reduce American global influence and to promote the interests of global financiers and ideologies hostile to the United States.

The Obama Administration is expecting reelection and expecting trouble. It has ordered nearly one billion rounds of hollow point bullets. Hint – that type of ammunition is not meant for target practice. The 750 million rounds ordered by Obama’s Department of Homeland Security alone is enough ammunition for the government to fire three rounds into the body of every living American citizen.

When the truth is eventually told, the chronicles of the Obama years will represent the most sordid in American history and symbolize a pivot point when self-serving politicians collaborated with a compliant press to trigger the fall of the American republic.

If Obama wins, the American people should be prepared for economic collapse, a full assault on Constitutional rights, societal fragmentation, and civil strife.

There is a criminal in the White House, who is bent on a radical transformation of the country and must be removed from office if the United States is to survive.

But representative government will not return to America simply by defeating Barack Obama. It will only return when ordinary Americans feel empowered by their political institutions, not oppressed by them.

Why You Can’t Trust Either Political Party This Election

Republican Democrat SC Why You Cant Trust Either Political Party This Election

We have elections, but we no longer have representative government.

National elections are not about Washington, D.C. responding to the will of the American people; they are about the distribution of power between the two political establishments.

Members of the political establishments parlay that power into influence, privilege, and affluence by redistributing the wealth generated by ordinary Americans into their own pockets and those of their friends.

The Democrat establishment is composed of the Democrat Party, liberal financiers, unions, and the mainstream media.

The Republican establishment includes big-government Republicans, their financiers, and pundits masquerading as conservative media.

The objective of both establishments is the same: to maintain a corrupt political status quo unconstrained by the Constitution and the rule of law.

The means by which both establishments maintain the status quo is the same: fostering a culture of dependency.

The Democrat establishment creates a culture of dependency by expanding government control and entitlements fed by tribal politics, which divides America into a collection of minority groups where the only thing that we have in common is our differences.

National Democrat Party Chairwoman, Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Shultz (D-FL), admitted as much when she recently proclaimed the Democratic Party as the “natural home” for minorities.

The Republican establishment produces a culture of dependency by limiting choice.

They want to remain the sole alternative to the Democrats. When grassroots movements like the Tea Party arise or independent thinkers speak out, they are co-opted or crushed by the Republican establishment.

On August 28, 2012, at their convention in Tampa, the Republican establishment rammed through a rules change (see video and article) that weakened the Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) delegate count and made other changes that will make it harder for non-establishment candidates to succeed in future elections by centralizing power in the hands of a few GOP operatives and stripping rights away from the state organizations. Several members of the Maine delegation walked out after the convention affirmed the GOP’s decision to replace 10 of Maine’s 24 delegates.

The Republican establishment also limits choice by pre-selecting candidates. In a private conversation, a Republican state chairman stated that Romney was selected as the nominee of the Republican establishment long before the primaries began.

Conservative Americans comprise about forty percent of the Republican electorate. The Republican establishment is now in the process of blackmailing them.

While making rules to suppress the impact conservatives and other grassroots movements have within the party, the Republican establishment proclaims the defeat of Barack Obama as the critical issue of the 2012 election and demands that everyone rally behind Mitt Romney to prevent the disaster of a second Obama Administration.

Wiselot Rouzard, a delegate from Nevada and a Ron Paul supporter, compared the Republican establishment power grab to Adolf Hitler taking power in Germany.

“There’s nothing American about what just happened,” he said. “This is the death of the Republican Party.”

Thomas Jefferson warned of just such a situation now occurring in the Republican Party. He called it “elective despotism.”

Will Political Reform Occur Only After A Catastrophe?

Congress Will political reform occur only after a catastrophe?

John Brown was an American revolutionary abolitionist, who in the 1850s advocated and practiced armed insurrection as a means to abolish slavery in the United States.

He was tried for treason, the murder of five pro-slavery Southerners, and inciting a slave insurrection; he was found guilty on all counts and was hanged on December 2, 1859.

On the day he died, Brown wrote: “I, John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land will never be purged away but with blood. I had, as I now think, vainly flattered myself that without very much bloodshed it might be done.”

Less than two years later, the U.S. Civil War began, the American casualties from which exceeded those of World War I, World War II, Korea, and Vietnam combined.

The United States is now facing its greatest Constitutional crisis since the Civil War. As Abraham Lincoln asked, will a nation conceived in liberty and a government of the people, by the people, and for the people perish?

The 2012 election is the most important in U.S. history, but not for the reasons either the Republican or Democrat Parties would have you believe because there is little difference between them.

They seek to win elections, not to uphold the Constitution, not to show respect for the rule of law, and not to serve the American people, but to obtain power and to use that power to accrue career and financials benefits for themselves and their major supporters.

Mitt Romney does not offer a significant change from the political status quo. So far, the most accurate slogan for his campaign seems to be: “I’m not the other guy.”

The real issue of the 2012 is whether or not the American people will endorse permanent political corruption in Washington, D.C. by voting for the status quo presently represented by the Republican and Democrat Parties.

The United States is heading for a financial meltdown. Projected government spending rates over the next twenty-five years will drive federal debt to unsustainable levels from 50% of Gross Domestic Product in 2010 to 101% and 195% of GDP for 2021 and 2036, respectively. By 2036, every American citizen will own $135,547 in U.S. Government debt compared to $36,267 today.

Article I of the U.S. Constitution requires Congress to pass a federal budget. Despite the imminent threat to the financial stability of the United States and the clear priority the Constitution gives to maintaining discipline in federal spending, the last time the Democrat-controlled Senate enacted a budget was April 29, 2009.

Republicans continue to be derelict in their duty and violate their oaths of office to support and defend the Constitution by refusing to vet Barack Obama’s Presidential eligibility and personal history. They are also recommending Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Republican Governor of Louisiana Bobby Jindal for Vice President, both of whom do not meet the Constitutional requirements for that office.

Republican congressional leaders, particularly Senator John McCain and House Speaker John Boehner, endanger national security by refusing to probe Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the Obama Administration and condemning those who legitimately request such an investigation.

On July 17, 2012, Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio provided convincing evidence that Barack Obama’s birth certificate, as presented by the White House on April 27, 2011, is a forgery.

In the presence of evidence that there is a criminal in the White House, what actions do Republicans and Democrats take? None.

In general, our elected officials are not concerned about the financial stability of the country, its national security, or upholding the rule of law.

In 2012, American voters are being offered nothing more than a continuation of a status quo incompatible with the survival of the country.

Barack Obama is being protected by a corrupt political establishment. Exposing Obama before the election will thwart the installation of permanent and pervasive corruption in the U.S. Government and pave the way for political reform.

Without that, change will eventually come, but more likely in the form of national collapse and fragmentation.
