Evans-Pritchard: Flee to Mars If America Commits Worst Error Since 1931


The Telegraph‘s Ambrose Evans-Pritchard screeches the best headline I’ve seen thus far in the American governmental debt crisis.

There will be other candidates for that honor, however.

Bet on it.

Barnhardt: How Liberty Dies


From Ann Barnhardt:

HOW LIBERTY DIES
POSTED BY ANN BARNHARDT – JULY 28, AD 2011 8:50 AM MST

The “media” is abuzz this morning with calls for Obama to unilaterally raise the debt ceiling himself. Rep. Clyburn, who is third in line in the House (and who named his daughter ‘Mignon’, as in ‘Filet Mignon’, because he is really, really intelligent and classy like that) is now calling for Obama to unilaterally raise the ceiling.

We know from the exposure of “Journolist” that the media and press colludes on these talking points with guidance from the Obama regime. We also know that all of the debt ceiling negotiations are total and complete kabuki. There are no spending cuts – only booking as “cuts” money which the government says it will NOT spend ten years from now.

It is all meaningless.

Guys – ten years ago today the Twin Towers were standing. NOTHING Washington says about “ten years from now” is ever going to happen – and every single one of them know this. And also understand that ObamaCare, if not fully repealed, will cost AT LEAST TEN TIMES what they are saying it will cost. ALL government entitlement programs cost 12-20 times their initial cost estimate. They are saying $2.6 trillion. It will be $26 trillion at minimum – which OBVIOUSLY would collapse the country just by itself. I doubt very seriously that this Republic will exist in its current form ten years from today.

It appears that Congress is going to do nothing, London will downgrade our credit rating (we are almost certainly going to be downgraded no matter what), interest rates will uptick, Obama will then unilaterally raise the debt ceiling $2.4 trillion in order to “save the country”, which is what Geithner told Congress was going to happen back in May anyway. Due to the additional economic pressure caused by the interest rate uptick, the Federal Reserve will then declare that QE3 is “necessary” and print several trillion more dollars. The Dollar Index will drop below all-time lows at 70.80, and then it will be over.

And so, what we will have is exactly what the Obama regime originally wanted back in May, except Obama will now have dictatorial, super-constitutional power in addition to $2.4 trillion to hand to the Unions, GE and the Muslim Brotherhood.

This is how liberty dies.

With thunderous applause.

Gunwalker: More Calls For An Independent Investigator

Thought not.

Billy Beck: Here’s How You Do It

From Billy Beck:

“If you think you have a right to force me to pay for your health care, then why don’t you have a right to force me to pick your cotton?”

It was Jeffrey Quick who asked that over at Facebook, and it’s one of the most elegant questions that I have ever seen on any subject.

I think I might have this done on a T-shirt, and I’m going to wear that sonofabitch out until someone answers me.

Barnhardt: The Combine


From Ann Barnhardt:

THE COMBINE
POSTED BY ANN BARNHARDT – JULY 13, AD 2011 8:02 PM MST

New term. And no, not in Latin this time. This is the brainchild of Andrea Shea King and ThirdWaveDave.

We need a name for the collective criminal enterprise that is our Federal Government. Democrat. Republican. Marxist. All of them, because they’re all in it together. The name?

THE COMBINE

A combine is defined as a combination of persons or groups for the furtherance of their political, commercial, or other interests, as a syndicate or cartel.

Uh, yeah. That’s it. That’s it EXACTLY.

Children, the Republicans are going to sell us out. Do you know why? Because Obama and Reid and Pelosi and Boehner and McConnell and Cantor . . . they’re all on the same team.

The Combine.

Obama’s little hissy fit this afternoon? It’s all playacting for our benefit – to keep us fooled into believing that they are “representing the American people”.

They represent THEMSELVES. Their priority is looting the government for as much money as possible before the economy implodes, getting that wealth ferreted away somehow, and then using that same wealth to seize control after the implosion.

It’s ALL about the COMBINE.

And this time, it is going to be for somewhere between $2.0 and $2.4 trillion dollars. And it’s all going to go offshore or otherwise off the grid, laundered through unions, foreign governments and sympathetic corporations, which will then launder it right back into the pockets of the Combine.

It’s time to start buying and storing potable water and storing gasoline. Silver is still under $40 per ounce. And, of course, ammunition.

Lots and lots of ammunition.

Armed Restore The Constitution Rally – Atlanta – August 19


From the RTC crew:

We’re going to be relentless until we wake up our Legislators and they actually Restore the Constitution! To that end, we have another peaceful, armed rally scheduled for Friday, August 19 between 3 and 7 pm at the Georgia State Capitol.

My guess is most people will attend after work; however we’ve reserved the capitol grounds all afternoon!

As you may know, the GA Legislature has schedule a special session to work on redistricting starting Monday, August 15. While they will not be working on any additional legislation, we thought it an opportune time to grab their attention! Our group stands for Restoring the Constitution and we pay particular attention to the 1st and 2nd Amendments.

Our main thrust is to insist our Legislators pass an Constitutional Carry Law in 2012.

I must say that I cringe every time I type “pass a law,” because in reality, they need to repeal laws that block our 2nd Amendment rights.

The founding fathers, in their wisdom, built a mechanism to grab the attention of our Legislators by including the 2nd Amendment in the Constitution. They saw the day that We the People would be ignored by the “ruling class.” We’re being ignored by both Democrat and Republican alike! There have been countless attacks on the 2nd Amendment by politicians to eliminate our right to bear arms. Just think where we’d be if they’d accomplished this!

I can assure you that NONE of us wants to implement a 2nd Amendment remedy to our problems, however perhaps we can capture their attention with a little sabre rattling.

Please join us and pass this along to your members and other groups. I’ve attached a flyer that can be posted or printed and distributed.

Regards,
John Bigham

A Message From Your God-King


Spartacus sends, noting:

Obama says politicians are the only ones professional enough to understand the economy, and we mere peasants should leave it to him and his ilk. He actually says “Professional Politicians” – twice, no less.

Back to work, filthy rabble.

More Advice From The Old Sarge


Commenter Sean:

Y’all relax, and do your best to prepare. Stay loose, and flexible. There’s always going to be bad stuff, and there’s always going to be good stuff. Roll with it, and be prepared to do and say and be things you didn’t think of before.

Maintain a sense of humor, because the bad guys do too, and it helps them relax before the next round of murder. Believe in yourself, and the freedom you desire. And never, ever, quit. Fight in whatever manner you have to, to get to where you want to be. You can go back to being good later. Your parents did. It made them cynical, and depressed, but nobody gets through life unscathed. If you want your babies to grow up tall, and strong and good and free, have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

And forget all the doomsday talking and we’re-all-going-to-the-gulag-and-die-rallies. Be thankful you got a shot at avoiding that, and then do something about it.

Come on, you apes! Do you want to live forever?
