PRESIDENT OBAMA DECLARES MARTIAL LAW – UPDATED

We are only 60 plus days into the faux president’s term and I am wondering how much more can this country take.  He is even worse than I anticipated  . . . a mix of Carter’s incompetence with a dash of Bush’s arrogance! God, help us!

Worse still, those of us who warned Obama could never be trusted to defend the Constitution, those of us who warned Obama cares not a whit about anyone but himself, are not surprised by the mysterious appearance of “22 military police and an Army officer into the tiny Alabama town of Samson last week ” as reported by USA Today on March 18th.   “No one” seems to know who authorized this incursion.

Another in a series of unexplained mysteries, like how Supreme Court Justice Scalia and Roberts appear to be unaware of the law suits brought before the Court.  These “mysteries” are so believable, right? The U.S. Army would like to know who sent the military police into Samson.  Here’s what I’d like to know.  How can any Army spokesperson ask that question with a straight face!

The Associated Press reports that an Army spokesman says the military has launched an inquiry to find out what happened, why the troops were sent from nearby Fort Rucker, what they did while there and whether any federal laws were broken.  Hmm, were any federal laws broken like the Posse Comitatus Act, perhaps?

The Posse Comitatus Act is a United States federal law (18 U.S.C. § 1385) passed on June 16, 1878 after the end of Reconstruction, with the intention (in concert with the Insurrection Act of 1807) of substantially limiting the powers of the federal government to use the military for law enforcement. The Act prohibits most members of the federal uniformed services (today the Army, Air Force, and State National Guard forces when such are called into federal service) from exercising nominally state law enforcement, police, or peace officer powers that maintain “law and order” on non-federal property (states and their counties and municipal divisions) within the United States.

The statute generally prohibits federal military personnel and units of the National Guard under federal authority from acting in a law enforcement capacity within the United States, except where expressly authorized by the Constitution or Congress. The Coast Guard is exempt from the Act.

I wrote the following on November 2, 2008.

Anyone remember Biden’s warning that in 6 months there would be a crisis facing the country and many people would not support Obama’s actions even though the new Administration felt they were right? What’s to prevent a faux President Obama from declaring martial law? Thanks to Bush 43’s signing NATIONAL SECURITY PRESIDENTIAL DIRECTIVE/NSPD 51, a faux President Obama could do this at will, in the name of national security!

In another barely reported story, powerful generals from the most powerful nations in the world recently held a meeting in tiny town in upstate New York. The Army has also stationed an infantry unit inside the United States. It is the first time a dedicated unit has been given an assignment as a response force for “crowd control” and other sorts of internal tasks.

Above all, let us not forget about Blackwater.  Candidate Obama was unwilling to say he would suspend their operation in Iraq (and elsewhere)  if elected President.  This is one of the few times that our faux President has kept his word.  Blackwater is still on the government payroll, as it were.

And if you are still not convinced that the use of Blackwater Worldwide by President Obama is far fetched, listen to this October 2007 Bill Moyers interview with investigative journalist  Jeremy Scahill.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED, YOU HAVE BEEN DULY WARNED!

WHAT DO PRESIDENTS BUSH 43, CLINTON, CARTER, AND REAGAN SHARE WITH SARAH PALIN (revised)

They are all governors that ran for the highest office (s) in the U.S. and none of them had any experience in foreign affairs worth noting.

That’s why the question, “How much foreign policy experience does Sarah Palin have?” is so bogus.

  • Prior to entering office Bill Clinton had virtually no foreign policy experience. He was a Governor of Arkansas and like Sarah Palin, he had little experience in foreign affairs. Affairs of the heart, don’t count! (Sorry, the devil made me do that!)
  • The same can be said of George Bush 43 , Governor of Texas. Have we all forgotten, that prior to being elected to the office his only experience abroad was almost non existant. Have we all forgotten why Cheney became VP?
  • Does the name Jimmy Carter ring a bell, Governor of Georgia, also sans foreign policy experience?
  • Ditto for Ronald Regan.

Ronald Reagan was completely inexperienced and had great success: negotiated arms reduction with the Soviets, urged Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin wall, which actually happened during George Bush’s presidency.

The fact is, Sarah Palin governor and commander in chief of Alaska’s National Guard has more experience than Obama. Sarah Palin took a two day tour of Kuwait during July of 2007, a full year before Obama gave his speech in Berlin in front of 200,000 Germans and left without first visiting the troops.

Bush 43, Clinton, Reagan, and Carter were all governors who ran for president (not vice president) and like Sarah they had little experience in foreign affairs to brag about.

This is now an issue because in the “Gotcha game of politics ” the MSM can’t stand the fact that McCain chose a great pick, hit one out of the ballpark, and didn’t tell them … except FOX NEWS, of course!

Hey, tell me again how there’s no double standard for women running for president, no sexism?

WANT A REASON TO VOTE FOR MCCAIN? ONE WORD. . . GEORGIA

Watching the old Soviet style politics of Russia’s invasion of Georgia, it is clear this is a world where we need “grown-ups” handling this country’s foreign policy. Russia’s invasion of Georgia simply cannot be tolerated.

It is clear Georgia’s oil pipeline and strategic position in the region is a threat to Russia’s desire to dominate and control all of the oil exports in the region. I’m no geopolitical expert, but it seems to me if Russia is able to control all 4 pipelines from Azerbaijan’s Caspian Sea fields heading into Turkey and westward into the EU, that it has one very big stick to lord over the west.

After listening to Bush’s tough talk yesterday and listening to McCain who do you think has a better feel for what is necessary? Think McCain would give one fig about looking into Putin’s soul, or Dmitry Medvedev, or any other Russian thug? Not me.

As for the pipsqueak, Obama, the phone rang at 3:00 am and its clear he wasn’t ready; too busy in Hawaii, don’t ya know! Really, whose hands do you trust to keep this country safe?

THE GUTLESS DEM’S . . . BEATEN AGAIN BY A LAME DUCK PRESIDENT!

Just like Barack, the Democratic Party & Congress continues to make promises that they can’t keep. They don’t even break a sweat. I’d use a word like shameful, but this group is well beyond that. You can’t shame this group of hypocrites. They’ve inhabited the Echo Chamber too long. It must be the rarefied air they breathe that shrinks their brains.

Yesterday was a good day for Democrats breaking promises and demonstrating, yet again, whom we shouldn’t trust. Obama glibly broke his promise to use public financing for the general campaign and the Dem’s gave the President everything he’s wanted to continue funding the war.

Pelosi’s House of Representatives approved a war-funding bill that includes a new GI Bill among other things. Wonder if we’ll find any “earmarks” making their way into the bill’s final version? Anyone placing bets on that question . . . didn’t think so.

Naturally, no consideration has been given to how the bill will be funded. Like most of the legislation of the last 40 years (the sole exception being the Clinton years where we had a balanced budget and a surplus) the attitude is spend now and don’t worry about later.

Didn’t Pelosi promise they wouldn’t give the President any money unless he agreed to timetables for an Iraqi withdrawal? Didn’t Harry Reid make a similar promise? Gutless!

Of course, there is another possibility, and that’s the fact that by not funding the war, this could lead to chaos in Iraq at a time when it’s clear the surge no Democrat supported is working. Is it possible that realism set in and the Democrats did not want to be perceived as weak on national security and responsible for an American defeat in Iraq?

Know the difference between Congress controlled by the Republicans and Congress controlled by the Democrats of the last year and a half . . . not a damn thing. A pox on both of their houses. It’s no wonder that Congress enjoys a 17% approval rating!
