In defense of Bill Clinton, their democrat president, the liberal media campaigned to convince Americans that character does not matter. In the midst of the Clinton scandals, I was shocked to hear even a minister say Clinton’s affairs were a personal matter and did not affect his presidency. The media spin worked.
An extraordinary man was featured on the Glenn Beck TV program, Jon Huntsman, founder of the Huntsman Cancer Institute. Asked by Beck to share, Huntsman told a tale of amazing integrity. In the 80s, Huntsman sold his business for 54 million dollars. The buyer’s lawyers were slow. In the 6 months it took them to finalize the contract, Huntsman’s business grew in value 5 times their original deal. The buyer was willing to pay more. Huntsman said he would stick to their original deal because he had given his word and shook the buyer’s hand. Huntsman’s character and integrity is a striking contrast to the caliber of men and women we have running our country.
Huntsman shared a quote from Winston Churchill, “With integrity, nothing else counts. Without integrity, nothing else counts.” I could not agree more. The kind of people we put in office is extremely important.
With Harry Reid and the democrats circumventing the will of the American people to pass their unprecedented massive government takeover of our lives disguised as a Health Care bill, Churchill’s words could not ring more true. Integrity equals Character. And these evil people have none.
How did these scoundrels get elected? It has been said, “the people get the government they deserve.” Do we deserve these socialists who are committed to changing America into an abomination of our Constitution, hijacking our freedom, liberty and culture; bankrupting the futures of our children and grandchildren? Is this the change many voted for? Did we bring Harry Reid’s Horror on ourselves? I think not.
Sadly, socialism is what some voters wanted. These pathetic entitlement minded knucklehead losers are still waiting for Obama to pay their rent, buy them a car and provide the gas. But the majority of Obama voters were conned, sold a lie, a moderate candidate. Funny how that “C” word (Character) always comes back to haunt. If a president is a narcissistic liar, it does not matter what he says.
Despite catastrophically high unemployment numbers, our character deficient president looks into the TV camera and boldly proclaims all is well. His blatant lies include the health care bill is deficit neutral, no government funded abortions and no health care for illegals. Obama’s character is so flawed you can almost always assume the truth is the opposite of whatever comes out of him mouth. It is horrific to have such a man as leader of the free world. A devastating experience taught me years ago character always matters.
The Old Man and The Lincoln.
My wife and I sold our home in Maryland to pursue a career opportunity in Florida. One of our two vehicles was an old Lincoln with a nightmarish oil leak. After hiring and firing numerous mechanics and spending $1500, the leak continued. We decided to dump the car before leaving for Florida.
An old white gentleman, probably in his 80s, answered our ad. Time grew short and we were desperate to sell the car. I did not want anything to blow the deal. Being an interracial couple, I thought it best Mary, my beautiful blonde wife, show the car to the gentleman alone. I read men like women wearing bright colors. So, I suggested Mary wear her red dress.
Mary met the old man in a restaurant while I waited in our second car. The Lincoln and Mary were a hit. The old man asked Mary to follow him home to finalize the deal. I followed.
As we approach his home, this was before cell phones, I attempted to telepathically tell Mary do not park in his driveway for he would surely notice the oil leak. She parked in his driveway.
Mary stayed in the old man’s home for what felt like forever. Because of his frail frame and slow deliberate movements, I had no fear for her safety.
Finally, Mary came out and hopped in the car. “I got it,” she exclaimed! “$3000, cash!” Elated, we gave each other a high five. At last the thorn in our side was gone.
As we drove home, Mary explain why it took so long to finalize the deal. The old man was obviously lonely. He liked Mary and shared family albums and stories with her. His wife of many years was in a nursing home. He visited the love of his life every day. Shamefully, I tried to justify our sin. “He is old. He won’t drive much. The oil leak is no big deal for him.”
Upon entering our front door, the phone was ringing. It was the old man. “Mr. Marcus, can I get my money back? That car is leaking oil something fierce.”
Suddenly, I was overcome with shame, sadness and embarrassment. Mary felt the same conviction. When the pressures of life squeezes you, what comes out reveals who you really are. I was devastated by what came out of me. I was so consumed with my needs I sacrificed my integrity. Just as Judas betrayal Christ and sold his soul for 30 pieces of silver, I sold my character for a measly $3000.
My replied to the old man was, “Yes sir, of course we will return your money.” Circumstances prevented us from returning his money until after the weekend. Meanwhile, I could not look at that money without weeping.
When we returned his money, the old gentleman thanked and praised us for being good honorable people. However, I knew we should have been honest and upfront with him from the beginning.
As Churchill said, “With integrity, nothing else counts. Without integrity, nothing else counts.”
Our country is under siege by evil characterless politicians. Yes, I boldly use the “e” word because I believe it to be accurate. Their power grabbing socialistic agenda is an anathema to our Constitution and everything which has made America great.
As Reid and company celebrate their under the cloche of darkness 1am victory vote, they under estimate the power of right and the will of we the people. Our integrity and love for our country will not allow this evil to prevail. 2010 is coming and there will be heck to pay!

It was more than sixty years ago when Americans were told to pass along to future generations, the politically correct but otherwise insane notion that we should avoid at all cost the open discussion of politics, religion and money, for fear of offending someone and upsetting the 24/7 cocktail party.
Sixty years later, few in America know anything about their country, their political system, the religion of freedom or the fiscal policies, which are the difference between the most prosperous free nation on earth and national bankruptcy. I know, shocking results, right…
As if only Nostradamus could predict the outcome of such overtly foolish advice, I attempted to raise the right question in a May 2006 column titled Are Americans Too Stupid to Run Their Own Country?
Americans answered that question in the following two election cycles, also warned against in my October 2006 column, When 51-49 becomes 49-51. My hit rate is better than that of Nostradamus at this point. But frankly, I was only predicting the inescapable outcome which every American should have been able to predict.
By November 2008, our nation had indeed become a nation in which the fools outnumbered the well-informed, at least in terms of active voters. Those who know nothing of history have doomed the rest of us to relive it.
End of discussion—the results are in—many Americans are indeed too stupid to remain free.
Thomas Jefferson warned more than 200 years ago, “Dependence begets subservience and venality, suffocates the germ of virtue, and prepares fit tools for the designs of ambition.”
He was right, and the “New Deal” America of increasing federal dependency has created a society of immoral, unethical, self-centered fools fit only for the designs of ambition. In other words, a nation which could be relied upon to elect corrupt elitists who would one day squander the resources of the wealthiest nation on earth, in the false promise of a “greater communal good,”—in an attempt to vote themselves more gifts from the public trough.
In 2008, over 69 million Americans voted for “hope” without even asking what kinds of “change” a Messiah with a blank resume had in mind for the once free republic. They gave up their future of freedom in “hopes” of more “free stuff.”
But almost 60 million other Americans voted against a rush into unbridled Marxism under the rule of the Democratic Socialists of America and their two congressional leadership councils, the Congressional Progressive Caucus established in 1991 by Representatives Ron Dellums (D-CA), Lane Evans (D-IL), Peter DeFazio (D-OR), Maxine Waters (D-CA), and Bernie Sanders (I-VT). – And the Congressional Black Caucus, formed by card carrying Communist John Conyers in 1971.
Additional House representatives have joined the ranks, including Major Owens (D-NY), Nydia Velazquez (D-NY), David Bonior (D-MI), Bob Filner (D-CA), Barney Frank (D-MA), Maurice Hinchey (D-NY), Jim McDermott (D-WA), Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Patsy Mink (D-HI), George Miller (D-CA), Pete Stark (D-CA), John Olver (D-MA), Lynn Woolsey (D-CA), and Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
Today, our nation is run by these folks and most Americans are just too stupid to connect the dots. They fail to recognize that communism and socialism are NOT “progressive” ideas. They are “totalitarian” concepts intended to enslave societies, not liberate them.
These are the concepts of people like Karl Marx, not Thomas Jefferson or James Madison and as such, they are wholly anti-American and even unconstitutional. Still, 69 million Americans voted these third world thinkers into unbridled power in 2008 and now many are trying to figure out what to do about it.
Almost 60 million voters saw it coming and voted against it. Nearly a year into unbridled Marxist policies later, over 70% of American’s now say they are “angry” with what the federal government is doing to their free republic, 46% identifying themselves as “VERY ANGRY!”—According to Rasmussen Reports
So not every American is too stupid to be free. But are the Americans smart enough to oppose Marxism too spineless to stop it?
They gathered at Tea Parties, Town Halls and 912 events to protest the utter destruction of their nation. They wrote letters, emails, and blogged, signing petitions and demanding to be heard. But nobody in DC is listening and they can’t figure out why…
The American people are in charge of their government, but even the angry ones don’t remember how. They think they are limited to their vote, protests, letter writing and petitions that nobody bothers to read.
Seventy years after being told never to discuss politics, religion or money, they find that they know nothing about politics, little about our nation’s religious foundation, or how to manage money or the people who have made a career of mismanaging their money.
Even they angry Americans may be too ill-informed or too spineless to live free in the 21 Century.
For this reason, I remind my fellow Americans that the future of their nation does NOT depend upon what a handful of Marxists in Washington DC do, but rather what millions of patriotic Americans choose to do about it.
I remind you that “all politics are local…” as in, your power exists at the local precinct, and together with other patriotic Americans, we have launched www.NationalPrecinctAlliance.org in order to place that powerful tool back in the hands of the American people, so that they can directly engage in the eleventh hour effort to reclaim control of their country.
I remind you that National Precinct Alliance is only the first of several targeted tangible strategies rolling out of www.FreedomForce.US for the grand purpose of returning America to its rightful place in the world, as the freest, most prosperous nation ever known to mankind, and the true beacon of hope for a world under leftist siege.
I remind you as we begin what promises to be a very challenging 2010 assault on all who have placed the United States of America on the brink of disaster, that it is YOU who will determine the outcome of the current battle for freedom raging in the freest land on earth.
I remind you that unlike any other nation on earth, if America ceases to be free, then no nation on earth will be free. If America ceases to be safe and secure, then no nation on earth will be safe or secure.
I write this to remind Americans that the future has always been in our hands, but that more than protests and petitions are required to secure that future now.
I write to tell you that we are in the eleventh hour and that only YOU can save this nation from those who intend its total ruin.
I couldn’t care less who might be offended by this column or any other I write. I am fully aware of the sad reality that not all who call themselves “American” are in fact “American” today, starting with our current resident of the people’s White House. The opinions of those who stand against my country are meaningless to me.
But for all who still love and revere the power of freedom, I call upon you to stand as one, united in the common defense of individual freedom and liberty, and DO something tangible to save freedom for future generations here and abroad.
The future is in your hands, and we have gathered many leaders to help place the tools you need to reclaim your country, back into your hands. Join us in this mission at www.FreedomForce.US and join us TODAY!
Further, I call upon ALL constitutionally conservative writers, TV and radio hosts across this country to either publicly support the unifying efforts of Freedom Force, or begin to identify other solutions you like better. Our nation’s problems are well defined at this stage. You have an obligation to direct your readers towards realistic and viable solutions!
If WE don’t save this nation, nobody will!

On Christmas Day 2009, the first of many terror chickens to come, came home to roost when a Nigerian member of Al Qaeda climbed aboard a US commercial flight headed from Amsterdam to Detroit and attempted to set off a chemical bomb mid-flight.
Once again, civilians found themselves in the position of having to provide for their own safety and security as the folks whose primary purpose is to provide for the common defense of the people, came up sorely lacking.
Had it not been for a handful of brave patriots willing to take matters into their own hands, Flight 253 could have ended the futures of everyone on board.
This is what we should expect in a nation that puts its soldiers on trial for taking their oath seriously in the war on terror abroad, while the Obama administration offers known enemy combatants civil rights in criminal courts, by no means designed to handle the complexities of war.
In fact, when the administration sees patriotic American citizens and former military personnel as “potential domestic terrorists” – and known terrorists as mere “criminals,” this is the best outcome we can hope for…
Predictably, Obama was quick on the trigger when taking aim at the agencies responsible for securing commercial flights. As Jim Meyers reports at Newsmax, Obama told reporters: “A systemic failure has occurred, and I consider that totally unacceptable.”]
Referring to the early signals, he said: “Had this critical information been shared, it could have been compiled with other intelligence and a fuller, clearer picture of the suspect would have emerged. The warning signs would have triggered red flags, and the suspect would have never been allowed to board that plane for America.”
Obama is the “systemic failure.” He and his terror-friendly administration, including US Attorney General Eric Holder, who was engaged in the legal defense on known terrorists before being named the head of the US Justice system by Barack Obama, have great difficulty separating “acts of war” from “criminal behaviors”—and—terrorists from US soldiers or even average American citizens for that matter.
As Meyers points out in his Newsmax report based upon a story in the liberal New York Times, “two federal officials told the paper that U.S. intelligence was aware that a Nigerian Muslim was preparing an attack, yet officials did nothing to give warning of such an attack.”
The paper reported Wednesday: “Two officials said the government had intelligence from Yemen before Friday that leaders of a branch of Al Qaeda were talking about ‘a Nigerian’ being prepared for a terrorist attack.”—“But despite those signals, the administration never raised a terror alert, and would-be bomber Abdulmutallab was allowed to board a plane bound for the United States.”
Gee… I wonder why an administration that sees average citizens as “potential terrorists” and actual terrorists as “common criminals” would hesitate to warn the people of the impending danger that lurks within a nation not at all serious about an enemy just as committed to death and destruction today as they were on September 11, 2001.
We are talking about the same folks who still refuse to admit that our nation is at war with extreme Islam around the globe—that we have numerous terror training facilities right here on American soil—or that the Jihadist in Ft. Hood was in fact an Al Qaeda operative in regular contact with known Al Qaeda cells in Yemen, up until he shouted “Allah Akbar” before killing a dozen unarmed soldiers at Ft. Hood.
Despite the fact that Americans, in part, elected Obama on the false belief that Bush and Cheney made America “less safe” by their semi-aggressive “war on terror,” the Washington Times now reports that 85% of Americans now expect terrorist attacks to be successful on American soil in 2010. That’s a cheerful thought full of “hope” for the New Year, huh…
For a “change,” I agree with 85% of Americans…
Still, one is compelled to ask why those responsible for making certain that someone like Abdulmutallab is unable to climb aboard a US commercial flight, chose not to do so?
This is the real point, isn’t it? Someone “in-the-know” chose NOT to share that information with people who could have and allegedly would have stopped Abdulmutallab from climbing aboard Flight 253. It was NOT an “intelligence failure” like 9/11/01… The guy’s own father reported his son MIA after making direct threats against the west.
He reported it to the US Embassy in Yemen, and there was plenty of time to react, had that information been shared with the appropriate agencies. Why wasn’t it?
While we’re at it, why is our federal government treating American soldiers like “enemy combatants” in military courts while offering civilians criminal courts and US Civil Rights to known enemy combatants captured on the battle field?
And here’s the biggest question of all—Why aren’t American citizens demanding answers to these and many more obvious questions?
As Democrat John F. Kennedy said so well—“A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.”
In October of 2008, I wrote a column titled Terrorists, Terrorism and Obama and nobody listened. Voters had been convinced by the leftist lame stream press that even a nobody with life-long ties to terrorists, communists and third world thugs, would be “better than Bush.”
I even asked in a column, Who is باراك حسين أوباما ? – Copy and paste this into your Google translator software. If you still don’t know who and what we elected, there may be no hope for you or the future of this once free and prosperous nation.
It didn’t take a Harvard grad to see it coming, but still, few listened. Obama’s entire past remains in hiding almost a year into his unconstitutional presidency.
A year and countless unconstitutional anti-American administrative decisions later, most Americans still aren’t listening, and as a result, their future looks grim so long as they fail to ask the right questions and demand truthful answers.
Forget about where Obama may or may not have been born. This is a side show aimed at misdirecting public attention and allowing the global left to pass off all dissenters as nothing more than crackpot conspiracy theorists, while the real conspiracy continues to unfold right under our noses.
Obama is unconstitutional by bloodline. The issue of Natural Born Citizen is a statement of bloodline, under natural law, not birth place under common law. Obama’s father was at no time a citizen of the United States. Obama inherited his name, his religion and his citizenship from his father.
So ask again – Why are Obama & Co. friendlier towards known terrorists than towards average American citizens simply upset by the current destruction of their free republic?
If you understand that you are asking this question of an Arab-Muslim, not an African-Christian, then you can probably figure out the correct answer all on your own. Obama was born and raised Muslim, not Christian. His so-called “Christian church” in Chicago is actually a “Black Nationalist Church,” which explains the racist rants of his life-long pastor, Rev. Wright.
But if you still think you are dealing with some new age Marxist Messiah planning to unite the world with American assets, then I challenge you to come up with a single acceptable answer to the obvious questions posed in this column.
Only one more reasonable question remains… How insane does it have to get before the American people wake up, take note and take action?
Since 85% of Americans expect successful terror attacks on USA soil in 2010, it’s clear that 85% of Americans understand that we are indeed, still at war with international Islamic terror. So, why did they elect leaders hell-bent upon helping those terrorists succeed?
Now most Americans are able to see the anti-American Marxist “change” Obama had in mind for America. So, at what point do the people awake and arise in defense of this great nation?
I worry that JFK was right about something else—“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”
Cut off from legislators, ignored by the White House, denied access to the courts and mocked by the leftist press, all peaceful solutions are quickly vanishing. When all peaceful means of redress are exhausted, only violent remedies will remain. Those who have denied the people a peaceful solution will be responsible for the violent solution that follows. I don’t call for it, but anyone who knows Americans well could predict it.
85% of the people are right. We will see successful terror strikes on US soil in 2010 and that’s because the current leadership in Washington DC is committed to that end. Their reaction to the events of 12-25-09 was also predictable.
“It’s becoming clear that the system that has been in place for years now is not sufficiently up to date to take full advantage of the information we collect and the knowledge we have.” – Obama
No… the system Bush had in place prevented a second, third and fourth wave of terror attacks on US soil and took the fight to the enemy abroad. That system did indeed stop any father attacks on US soil for the seven years that followed 9/11/01.
It’s the new system of terror appeasements and support, both here and abroad, put in place by Obama, Holder and Napolitano which has made terror attacks on US soil inevitable again.
The attempted bombing on Flight 253 from Amsterdam to Detroit has touched off partisan squabbling in Washington. Republicans were sharply critical of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano after she declared on Sunday that “the system worked,” even though the bombing was thwarted only when Abdulmutallab’s device failed to detonate. (from the Newsmax column)
The Napolitano system failed and citizens were left to defend themselves on Flight 253.
In the days following the Flight 253 event, Al Qaeda leaders warned of 300 more bombers coming and counter-terrorism experts around the globe have placed the risk of massive nuclear, biological or chemical attacks on US soil at a 100% certainty. Only the hour and level of devastation are unknown.
This is what the American people voted for in 2008. 52% were dead wrong in November 2008, but 85% are dead right now. It will get worse before it can get any better.
The policies that allowed Abdulmutallab to board Flight 253 will allow countless others to advance their attacks on the US. The Obama military “Rules of Engagement” will cost many more American soldiers their lives, senselessly. Eric Holder’s Civil Rights for Terrorists campaign will set many known enemies of our nation free to kill again… and Americans will die to learn this lesson the hard way.
At the end of the day, you can’t win a war by refusing to acknowledge its existence. You can’t defeat extreme Islam by aiding and abetting Jihadists, and you can’t end the war on terror by refusing to fight the war on terror. You can only get more innocent people killed with such policies.
This is what we can look forward to in 2010. 85% of Americans know it, and thanks to the 15% who don’t, all Americans will pay a heavy price for the decision of the 52% who put these folks in unbridled power.
Is it all just an accident, or does it all serve a “greater good?” You decide how the evidence adds up, but decide soon. The clock is ticking…

“UN report says pandemic may result in anarchy—‘could kill millions’—unless western world pays for antiviral drugs and vaccines!” —From “The Guardian” September 20, 2009
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama has declared the swine flu outbreak a national emergency, giving his health chief the power to let hospitals move emergency rooms offsite to speed treatment and protect non-infected patients. — Associated Press—October 25, 2009
In addition to the “global warming” rip-off, you can add another huge international racketeering operation—the H1N1 “pandemic” of 2009.
Both of these ploys were designed to fleece the western nations of billions, possibly trillions, of dollars. In the case of the H1N1 scam, the western governments have already coughed up billions of dollars for vaccines to prevent a bogus “pandemic.” That means that we, the taxpayers, have been ripped-off yet again.
If class action lawsuits aren’t on the way, then they darn well should be.
The European nations have apparently not been paid off to the extent of the U.S. Congress, and have decided to look into things.
According to a report filed by F. William Engdahl, the Council of Europe Parliament has unanimously proposed to start an investigation this month into “the influence of the pharmaceutical companies on the global swine flu campaign.”
The purpose of the inquiry is to investigate collusion between the “Golden Triangle” of the UN’s WHO (World Health Organization), certain pharmaceutical companies, and academic scientists.
That scenario should sound familiar, as it’s similar to “global warming’s” collusion between the UN’s IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), “green energy” corporations, and academic scientists.
Both scams were intended to “redistribute the wealth” globally, while making the Global Elite, very, very rich. They get to wipe out the middle-class, destroy capitalism, install a UN-run global regime, and get exceedingly wealthy, all at the same time. It’s a win/win situation all around, for Progressives at least.
The resolution just passed by the Council of Europe Parliament includes the charge that, “In order to promote their patented drugs and vaccines…pharmaceutical companies influenced scientists and official agencies…to alarm governments worldwide and make them squander tight health resources for inefficient vaccine strategies and needlessly expose millions of healthy people to the risk of an unknown amount of side-effects of insufficiently tested vaccines.”
The motion was introduced by Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, Chairman of the European Parliament Health Committee. He stated that millions of healthy people were unnecessarily “exposed to the risk of poorly tested vaccines,” for no other reason than the purported threat of a flu strain that is “vastly less harmful” then previous flu strains.
Dr. Wodarg’s talking about the Swine Flu, or H1N1, or “novel H1N1,” or “2009 H1N1,” or whatever they’re trying to pass it off as these days. You remember—the national emergency?
You ought to remember—after all, you helped to pay for the billions spent on vaccines. Big Pharma thanks you, and so do their stockholders. Speaking of which, do you think some of those stockholders just might be Global Elitists? Just asking.
Dr. Wodarg suggested that, “The Council of Europe and its member-states should ask for immediate investigations and consequences, on their national levels, as well as on the international level.” Consequences—hmmm, good suggestion.
Why isn’t the U.S. doing the same? Too many bribes, too many “donations” made to too many politicians, too many deals made with Big Pharma to get Obama-Care passed? That would be my guess.
Our renowned “people’s watchdog,” the Lame Stream Media, remains ever-vigilantly silent on the subject. Although I must admit that CBS did, almost, nearly look into malfeasance on the part of the CDC (Center for Disease Control) regarding the Swine Flu scam.
I guess, once again, it’s up to “we the people” to straighten things out. Anybody know some good class action lawsuit lawyers?
