    Is there still ANY question of the regime’s intent anymore?

    We read long lists of infractions on our American Liberties every day, all day…each day, each week, each month, each year. Scandal after scandal after scandal.

    WHY? We know what they are up to. There is no longer any question.
    Why aren’t we doing anything about it?

    Why aren’t the governors, senators and congressmen stopping it?

    Because they are PART of it.

    I’m stuck in moderation?

    Merely “energizing the base” is not DOING something about the problem.

    Talking is no longer the solution.

    Define “doing something about the problem”.

    • The problem is that half the country is no longer being represented and our politicians are no longer afraid (at all) of our anger. When I read about how politicians in the Mark Twain era were constantly afraid of being dragged from their offices by angry mobs and suffering bodily harm that no law enforcement could protect them from, I begin to wonder if we’ve made a mistake by allowing ourselves to become such a police state AND to allow such a stigma to be placed on violent citizen action. I think that both of those things might change, but right now, they’re moot points. At the moment, only violence by leftists and muslims is tolerated in this country. Anything else is met with immediate crushing force and non-coverage by the media.

      Personally, I think that some of our politicians can still be shamed into acting by the outrage expressed in the internet media, Fox News and a few others, like CBS. But what will happen if we sink farther into economic despair? Bad stuff.

  5. Ummm. Here’s a sales surge that’s not good news. Demand for Orwell’s ‘1984’ surges 7000% in last 24 hours.

  6. WASHINGTON (BHN) – In likely preparation for a 2016 presidential run, Hillary Clinton is hitting the social media sites.
    The move is seen as the first step in rehabilitating Clinton’s persona from inept, lying, profane shrew to that of a nurturing, wholesome mother and wife.
    “It’s the equivalent of convincing the country that a narcissistic socialist pot-smoking Muslim would make a great president. It’s definitely doable,” said one political analyst.

  7. It’s a crying shame the blindness of our times now!

      link. huh?

    • “You must remember never to cease to act because you fear you may fail.”
      Brilliant. And I would add that you must never fail to act because you fear you may be wrong. We live in a time when good men live paralyzed by fear, unable to act. God can forgive horrendous mistakes, but I suspect regret for inaction follows us into the next life.
