  • Title: Warning Signs
    Descriptive info: .. skip to main.. |.. skip to sidebar.. Warning Signs.. Alan Caruba's blog is a daily look at events, personalities, and issues from an independent point of view..

Monday, July 16, 2012.. How the World Really Works.. By Alan Caruba.. Americans are ignorant of the lessons of history and that s why their country is going down the tubes.. The lesson of economic history is clear: there is no flat playing field in the world and there never has been.. There are rich nations and poor nations.. There are winners and losers.. So much for Thomas Friedman s beloved myth that the world is flat thanks to advances in communication and patently useless technologies such as wind and solar power, biofuels like ethanol, and other costly, wasteful nonsense.. What matters is whether the cost of the electricity to power our televisions, our computers, and everything else is affordable, whether the cost of gasoline doesn t bankrupt a family s budget, and whether everyone in that family who can work can find a job.. Nations will the greatest amount of energy are the most successful nations.. Martin Sieff is the Chief Global Analyst for The Globalist Research Center, a former United Press International Managing Editor for International Affairs, and widely published where it counts, such as The Wall Street Journal, Commentary, the National Review.. It is his quote with which I began this commentary and it is his new book, That Should Still Be Us: How Thomas Friedman s Flat World Myths are Keeping Us Flat on Our Backs from which I took the quote.. With the caveat that Sieff has drunk lightly the global warming/climate change Kool-Aid, this is one of the most extraordinary clear-headed, fact-filled books about the real world you will read in a very long time.. In every other respect, its pages hold nothing back while sharing his deep insights to the real world and the way it really works.. One of the pleasures of reading Sieff s book is that he spares no one, either on the Left or the Right, Republican or Democrat, when it comes to describing the policies that have reduced the United States of America to a debtor nation, in hock to China, and getting poorer at the rate of two million dollars a minute.. We are already borrowing forty cents of every dollar we spend, importing two thirds of the oil we use, and have millions of Americans out of work thanks to trade policies that removed most of the trade protections of our manufacturing base that date back to Lincoln through to Kennedy.. Seiff explains why the U.. S.. Steel, auto and textile industries have been destroyed by the failure to protect them against nations like China and India who have adopted our former policies and use them against us.. Instead we have swallowed the myths that high-tech innovations will energize an economy that grew wealthy producing things of real value, emphasizing real quality, and holding onto a skilled workforce.. At the heart of Seiff s analysis is a fact that few Americans consider when they ponder why America is in economic decline.. When I was born over seventy years ago there were an estimated two billion people in the world.. Today there are seven billion.. They all expect to be fed daily, all yearn for a middle class lifestyle, and want the freedoms that America s wealth was able to preserve and protect.. By contrast, China s authoritarian system that permits few freedoms has embarked on providing something else, jobs and the energy to power their creation and maintenance.. It is why China is building a new coal-fired plant to generate electricity at a rate of one a month while here in the U.. , we have an administration that is deliberately and openly bankrupting our coal industry and seeking to shut down coal-powered plants.. How idiotic is that? The Obama administration will not even allow the Canadian Keystone XL oil pipeline to be built even though it would create 20,000 jobs and not cost the U.. taxpayer a single cent!.. Under successive presidents since Lyndon Johnson, the U.. has engaged in one failed war after another in the name of exporting our democracy around the world, but ineffective democracies fail and open the door for authoritarian regimes.. Maybe we need to stop joining every international organization from the United Nations to the World Trade Organization and then sit by idly as other nations, including our allies, eat our lunch?.. In the wake of the disaster of the Obama administration the epitome of socialism Americans are beginning to learn what their grandparents and their grandparent s parents knew all along.. Big Government is the enemy of free enterprise, a free market in which to compete, an educational system overseen by localities and states, and the provision of its most important service, a defense against enemies that might want to attack us and the protection of America s borders from the hordes pouring across illegally, using all our public services, filling our jails when they aren t taking jobs that natural born and naturalized citizens need and want.. If you read no other book this year, read That Should Still be Us , and then vote for people that will restore the policies that created a great nation that is coming perilously close to collapse.. Alan Caruba, 2012.. Posted by.. Alan Caruba.. at.. 2:24 PM.. 2 comments:.. Sunday, July 15, 2012.. Pondering the Obama Enigma.. By Alan Caruba.. On January 2, 2010, I posted a commentary to my blog,.. Obama s Make-Believe Life.. Someone picked it up, slapped the phony name of Eddie Sessions on it, and then alleged that it has been published in The Wall Street Journal.. That commentary has literally gone around the world several times on the Internet.. Hardly a day goes by that I do not receive an email asking to confirm if I wrote it or the Journal published it.. Like everyone else, since the 2008 campaign and the years since Barack Hussein Obama took the oath of office in 2009 I have tried to figure out the truth about him.. Who is he? What does he stand for? What are his guiding principles and values? Where is he taking the nation?.. On June 9th, addressing an audience at the Brookings Institute in Washington, D.. C.. , New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said, You cannot lead by being a mystery.. You cannot lead by being an enigma.. You cannot lead by being aloof.. Many books have been published about Obama and I have read quite a few.. With the exception of his two memoirs, those who delved deeply into the known facts of his life did not like what they found.. In the years since he assumed office, many Americans have come to the same conclusion, often as the result of having been victimized by policies that have exacerbated the harm done to the economy after the financial industry incurred a meltdown; itself a victim of federal government s housing agencies and banking policies.. Instead of stepping back from the precipice, government under the Obama administration engineered the takeover of one sixth of the economy with the passage of Obamacare, acquired a major interest in two leading automobile companies, invested and lost billions in clean energy companies, and via the Environmental Protection Agency has asserted virtual control over manufacturing and other sectors by falsely claiming that carbon dioxide is a pollutant that must be regulated under the Clean Air Act.. While this was occurring the amount of debt incurred has reached historical heights, now somewhere near $17 trillion dollars, actually exceeding the value of the Gross Domestic Product, the amount of money earned by American industry and other business enterprises.. Barack Hussein Obama remains an enigma.. Since my 2010 commentary I have written others that concluded that he is a moron and a Communist.. I know these are harsh judgments, but not being a psychiatrist, I have been reluctant to venture into psychological areas.. Instead I have concluded that he is one of those over-educated fools that is devoid of an understanding of history and of common sense and that his biography clearly demonstrates an affinity with Communism in terms of his upbringing and choice of associates.. There are other unsavory aspects to Obama s life, not the least of which is his two decade association with a racist and anti-Semite, Rev.. Jeremiah Wright and others of his ilk.. Never forget Rev.. Wright s condemnation of America as the cause, not the victim of 9/11, when he said God damn America:, absolving Islam of any blame.. At this point, four months out from the election, I was stunned to read that Obama believes his biggest mistake was to concentrate too much on policy and not enough to tell a story to the American people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially during tough times.. Few Presidents come to mind who have been as divisive as Obama and there is no evidence beyond his vague, unfilled promise of hope and change that he has inspired anyone.. He has told a story to Americans unceasingly in every venue possible.. Franklin Delano Roosevelt was reelected three times precisely because he conveyed a story to voters of the era of the Great Depression that kept them believing he knew how to solve its problems.. Instead, like Obama, he expanded what was always intended to be a limited federal government into a monolith.. Obama has expanded it.. What I found most striking, however, was Obama s belief that his vaunted talent for delivering a speech had failed him.. He confessed to CBS News s Charlie Rose that not only had he failed to explain , but also to inspire.. Like everything else about Obama, this struck me as a calculated lie.. I  ...   reaching a dollar an hour, and though corporations and farmers were doubling and tripling pre-war income, Congress was hostile to paying for the war through increased taxes.. Today the only thing President Obama talks about is.. increasing.. taxes and, despite his claims, everyone will be hit by higher taxes via Taxameggon on January 1, 2013 unless Congress intervenes and as the twenty-one taxes hidden in Obamacare kick in if it is not repealed.. What one learns from Weintraub s book, as from others about Roosevelt, is that he was an extraordinarily cunning man, devious, and a brilliant politician.. He was also a realist, understanding that an Eastern Front by the Russians was necessary to defeat Hitler, but also quite naïve regarding the penetration of Communists throughout his administration right up to and in the White House.. J.. Edgar Hoover suspected correctly that among Soviet informants were Alger Hiss in the State Department, Harry Dexter White at the Treasury, and Lauchlin Currie, an aide at the White House.. Not unlike the 2012 elections, The President knew that he had to appeal to what has since been termed the swing vote the uncommitted independents.. So, despite the passage of time the political issues of Roosevelt s final campaign were much the same as today s.. Roosevelt won 432 electoral votes to Dewey s anemic 99.. He and Harry Truman were sworn into office on January 20, 1945.. By then, Roosevelt had had numerous moments of serious incapacitation, though the campaign had seemed to revive his vigor.. Truman, who had met FDR for an opportunity to be photographed with him was not briefed by Roosevelt on the events affecting either foreign or domestic affairs.. To most Americans, he was a blank slate, but he turned out to be a successful President and was returned to office in the next election.. Nearly seventy years ago, Americans were both alike and very different from those today.. The era of Big Government that FDR ushered in during the course of the Great Depression is now one in which the government s huge debt and deficit, and the flagging economy are issues that will likely decide the outcome of the elections in November 2012.. Having imposed term limits on the presidency, the time is long overdue for term limits on members of Congress as well.. They are, however, not likely to vote themselves out of office.. That remains the job of the American voter.. 1:46 PM.. Wednesday, July 11, 2012.. Tom DeWeese, Patriot.. For about ten years I served as the communications director of the.. American Policy Center.. , founded in 1986 and led by Tom DeWeese.. Essentially my job was to disseminate news of the Center s activities and Tom s commentaries on events and trends.. Tom is a likeable fellow, but also intense.. There is no room in his world for those individuals and groups that would threaten our freedoms.. That s why we are so simpatico as my Italian grandparents would say.. I remain an advisor to the Center; something I regard as an honor.. I serve in this capacity for other similar groups.. The Center is a privately funded, nonprofit, 501 c (4) tax-exempt grassroots action and education foundation dedicated to the promotion of free enterprise and limited government regulations over commerce and individuals.. Tom is one of those people who read the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution at a young age and was inspired to devote his life to protecting the fundamental ideals within them.. To put it another way, Tom is a patriot.. Recently, he disseminated a commentary,.. When loving your country marks you as a domestic terrorist.. It is particularly timely because so many things occurring within the Obama administration are very ominous.. In particular, Tom documents the relationship between the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), an organization with its roots in the Civil Rights movement, and the Department of Homeland Security.. The SPLC was founded in 1971 by Morris Dees and Joseph J.. Levin, Jr.. The nonprofit civil rights organization pioneered the use of civil law suits on behalf of victims of organizations it deemed to be hate groups and initially many were.. Ironically, Dees had started off in politics working for the famed advocate of segregation, George Wallace, a former Governor of Alabama and one-time candidate for president.. Over the years, however, SPLC has been criticized for spending more on fund raising than legal activities.. It has also mutated into an organization famed for publishing lists of hate groups that include the Tea Party and those it deems to be on the radical right.. In the case of the APC, there is nothing radical about it.. It has never advocated violence.. Its agenda, pure and simple, is the defense of the Constitution, traditional American values, and the sovereignty of the United States.. As such, the APC fulfills an essential educational function on issues from Agenda21 to education, immigration issues, free enterprise, and property rights, among others.. Tom s commentary describes how SPLC has moved from civil rights to an agenda devoted to identifying hate groups , those on the right and how, in the process, its agenda closely resembles the Department of Homeland Security under the current administration.. These days, SPLC identifies as threats to the nation, Islamaphobes, political opportunists, religious right anti-gay groups, and patriot groups among others.. The American Policy Center is on its list.. On July 11th I too made the list as well because a.. SPLC article.. about myself and Tea Party Nation, a social network, gave voice to an attack on our views, labeling them extremist.. In a similar fashion, Homeland Security identifies groups that oppose same-sex marriage, are anti-abortion, oppose illegal immigration, the United Nations, the Tea Party, the Constitution and Libertarian Parties as potential terrorists , but barely noticed are groups advocating Islamism.. This is an administration that called the Fort Hood murders workplace violence and not terrorism.. Tom notes that Homeland Security has established Fusion Centers in every state designed to combine federal, state, and local law enforcement whose stated purpose is to respond to terrorist attacks and natural disasters and has organized a Countering Violent Extremism Working Group.. It is, says Tom, a turn in your neighbor program, similar in nature to authoritarian governments.. The SPLC, Tom says has direct ties to the Department of Homeland Security, helping to write official DHS policy that may affect my life, my freedom, my ability to travel and my ability to speak out ; essentially anyone disagreeing with actions of the American government is a potential terrorist and must be, at least, watched and monitored by federal, state, and local authorities.. DHS was created in the wake of 9/11, an attack by Islamists on the nation.. Under the Obama administration it has mutated into something very different, very dangerous to our freedoms.. We have four months before, as voters, we can take the steps necessary to remove this threat.. 1:16 PM.. 4 comments:.. Older Posts.. Home.. Subscribe to:.. Posts (Atom).. Donate..

  • Title: Warning Signs: Pondering the Obama Enigma
    Descriptive info: Pondering the Obama Enigma.. 8 comments:.. LarryOldtimer.. Obama is an almost white guy in blackface.. Has no knowledge of his own.. just acting (poorly)and playing to the peanut gallery.. July 15, 2012 5:08 PM.. Lime Lite.. Obama wrongly assumes that he hasn t told his message (fairy tale) to the American people correctly.. It s not his story-telling ability that American s aren t warming to, it s the story he s telling and selling! Or as Clinton didn t say: it s the policies stupid!.. July 15, 2012 9:19 PM.. Ronbo.. Why am I thinking of Kipling s The Man Who Would Be King and it s logical outcome when the people discover that their sacred monarch is mortal and a thief?.. July 16, 2012 2:17 AM.. Harry Dale Huffman.. I expect you have read Shelby Steele s 2008 pre-election book about Obama, which I think should have dissipated much of the enigma you see in him.. Put simply, Obama is all Mask , he has lost himself in such teachings as Rev.. Wright s liberation theology , which sees the white man and his institutions as the root of all evil.. If his side can only gain the power , the sun will come out and all God s chillun will scamper happily and harmoniously together.. In reality, of course, like all adolescent fantasists, he has only learned that it doesn t stop with getting just SOME of the power , even the Presidency of the United States of America, it takes ever more and more--and the happy millennium only recedes before him, mocking his power and enticing him to grasp for more, to make real what is not, and will never be, real: Final justification of his life in beating down the (white) Man and His Evil Institutions.. That Evil simply does not exist, in such an all-encompassing and monolithic form.. Obama s lying nature was obvious to me in the original Rev.. Wright episode, and his readily apparent lies now--about Romney, on the one hand, and about what he still pretends he will do for America if re-elected, on the other--all cause me to reflect the idea of Obama s enigma back: The enigma is that nearly half of the American voters have yet to figure out that he is running on self-serving lies, and always has.. Not all of those who say they will still vote for him are, essentially, black racists--seeing themselves as continuing victims of white men and white institutions--like Obama himself; why are the reasonable ones so stupid at  ...   his solutions were right out of the socialist handbooks of feel good sayings that have no real meaning because they are never defined.. I don t find him to be an enigma; and that is because there is no real Obama.. He is accused of being a Muslim.. I don t believe that.. He has claimed to be a Christian.. I don t believe that either.. Obama is a true puppet of the left.. He will publically believe anything that will give him power.. Has his thinking been effected by his associations with these groups? Of course, but they hold no sway over him unless they represent a force that hates all that is stable.. If you take a look at Stalin s five year plans that all failed you will see that it wasn t the fault of the plan.. It was the fault of those who managed the plan , which of course was perfect because it was Stalin s plan, so any failure was the fault of others.. They were replaced because they were puppets of capitalism with those who also failed; but the plan was still perfect, except these plans never worked.. His affinity to hatful and socialist thoughts and solutions, along with his much vaunted IQ that is off the charts , has failed to provide basic understanding on anything he has undertaken, hence.. he travels and talks, and talks and travels, and travels and talks, and talks.. doing and saying nothign of vaule.. And he seems to be saying the same things over and over again with slight variations.. Yet he has yet to produce one coherent thought that has had a positive outcome.. His solutions are meaningless drivel that can t be defined! It isn t like he said something definitive like; Mr.. Gorbachev; tear down this wall! You knew what that meant.. His belief that he has a gift when he speaks makes him believe that his speaking ability is a solutions ability.. He is an empty coat.. He has nothing to offer except a performance, one that has been supported by an amazingly gigantic ego.. One that was somehow created without actually having accomplished anything.. even as President.. Thomas Sowell once noted that some of the smallest intellects house the largest egos.. This fits.. July 16, 2012 12:51 PM.. Rich: I have long thought Obama is a classic pathological narcissist.. I have a commentary coming on the topic later this week.. Such people include Muhammad, Hitler, Stalin, and cult leader Jim Jones.. July 16, 2012 4:37 PM.. Newer Post..

Anyone they deem not living up to their collectivist, totalitarian mindset is regarded as a threat.. It doesn t matter if they publish the truth, just as long as they can get their smear in.. You can only feel sorry for these worms, as, yes, they really are that dumb.. They should be put back in their worm box where it s dark, smelly and rank, and where their purpose is to produce castings to feed the garden!.. July 12, 2012 1:15 AM.. Doc Holliday.. I loved this article, scary as it is.. I wonder sometimes what it must be like, to be working in a government agency like Homeland Security and one day come to the realization that YOU are spiritual, even philosophical brethren to the KGB, the Nazi S.. and the like, a tool of oppression.. Many let the Left off the hook by thinking that Fascism is a far right thing, but no.. Technically the only difference between Communism and Fascism is the formal claim of government being the owner of the business sector.. Crony Capitalism or Fascism (same thing) puts government in the drivers seat controlling the business sector.. To control is to own.. The Republican in name only bunch (RINO) are  ...   that marks them as part of a Patriot group and potentially not sufficiently subservient to government to be a good serf, also come to realize they are creating the future prison for their own children and their children s descendents.. July 12, 2012 6:03 AM.. @Doc - I don t think those people care about the future - their ideology trumps common sense and they have a short attention span.. Good comment by the way.. July 12, 2012 4:40 PM.. As a professional civil engineer (retired) I can say.. steel reinforced concrete is only good for about 50 or so years.. then it crumbles into pieces.. All of the Interstate highway bridges in the period of 1962 to 1974 will begin failing shortly, and there is no funding to replace any of them, there are so many of them.. This nation s infructure is in really bad shape, as ASCE (American Society of Civil Engieers)has compained about (not funding anywhere what was and is vital to this nation) for the last 40 or so years.. Plus, all of the debris from the tsunami in Japan is now washing onto Pacific ocean shores, now down as far south as Oregan, and headed south quickly indeed.. Not a single state has the funding to deal with all of this huge mess.. July 14, 2012 9:56 PM..

By happenstance, not planning, I have a commentary about the Center and DeWeese, also under attack by the SPLC, that will be posted here later today.. It was written over the weekend.. The SPLC article asserts that I am the communications director for the American Policy Center.. This is wrong.. I served in that capacity for about ten years until 2004.. I continue to be an advisor to the Center.. Also under attack in the article, Tea Party Nation, a social network site to which I contribute my commentaries.. Apparently the SPLC has a problem with any group or organization that seeks to protect the Constitution and the nation "from all enemies foreign and domestic.. ".. 9:02 AM.. 10 comments:.. Tuesday, July 10, 2012.. Speaking in Poland, Ohio on April 6, President Obama said The stakes could not be bigger regarding the forthcoming election, adding that The choice between visions on how this nation moves forward is the critical issue.. He s right, but he has a problem.. The nation has not moved forward now for some 41 months, stuck at the artificial 8.. 2% unemployment rate when everyone knows it is far higher, particularly for young people (12.. 1%), for Blacks (14.. 4%) and Hispanics (11%).. So why would they ever vote for him? If the polls are correct, they will.. On the same day, Rasmussen Reports announced their polling showed that, so far as the economy was concerned, ratings for the president s performance in that area are at their lowest level since last November.. A national telephone survey shows just 31% of Likely Voters believe President Obama is doing a good or excellent job handling economic issues, including 12% who say he is doing an excellent job.. An excellent job? Nothing Obama has done since taking office has improved the economy and one need only point to Obamacare, the forthcoming January 1, 2013 taxameggon , the Keystone XL pipeline veto, the billions lost to failed solar panel companies, three years without a federal budget, et cetera, to see how disastrous his performance has been.. On the day Obama spoke, the employment statistic cited 80,000 new jobs, many of which were temporary, when economists were saying that at least 150,000 new jobs were needed, pointing to the low growth in retail sales, and all the usual indices that spell out still more hardship being felt by Americans.. Here in America, you can make it if you try , said Obama.. No, you can t.. The burden of taxation and regulation makes it nearly impossible to start a business or employ anyone, so jobs do not get created even if Obama still thinks that government spending creates them.. As Larry Kudlow, an economist and syndicated columnist, noted in June, You would think $1 trillion in spending stimulus and $2.. 5 trillion of Fed pump-priming would produce a whole lot stronger than 1.. 9% gross domestic product, which was the revised first-quarter number.. And you would think all that government spending would deliver a lot more jobs than 69,000 in May.. By July Kudlow would write, Obama s goose may already be cooked.. Who would vote to reelect a President with such a dismal record? Mr.. Smooth Talker made no mention of Friday s job numbers and, since the Supreme Court ruled Obamacare constitutional, he has made little mention of it.. Why remind people of this hugely unpopular piece of legislation? Why not just provide a campaign speech filled with empty rhetoric?.. The facts, however, cannot be ignored.. In June the Congressional Budget Office released a long-term budget outlook on the federal debt the kind that has to be paid back estimating that it will surge to 70% of the economy by the end of the year.. As the Wall Street Journal noted, That s the highest share of Gross Domestic Product in U.. history except World War II.. It s also way up from 40% in 2008 and from the 40-year average of 38%.. What are those 31% of Likely Voters thinking? Are they, in fact, thinking about anything other than sports scores and the vacuous television shows and films that pass for entertainment?.. They are surely unaware that the economy has a dismal 2% growth rate and the past three recovery summers have been anything but.. Every way economists measure the economy is failing; employment, retail sales, and factory orders.. When Richard Nixon was running for office, his detractors, in addition to calling him Tricky Dick , frequently would ask, Would you buy a used car from this man? Nixon actually looked sinister and lacked Obama s dazzling smile, but the question needs an update.. Would you buy a used car from Obama?.. Do you think the nation can survive another four years of watching him and Michelle live high on the hog while millions of Americans run out their unemployment benefits, while savings run out, and while he systematically dismantles what was the greatest economic machine the world has ever known?.. 1:34 PM.. Monday, July 9, 2012.. Having secured enough of the Republican delegates to their forthcoming convention, Mitt Romney has smoothly and effectively locked up the nomination to oppose Barack Obama.. It is easy to forget how many candidates he had to defeat in primaries around the nation.. Dick Morris, a Fox News political analyst, is on record saying he believes Romney will win in a landslide.. Obama s poll numbers regarding performance have been poor for months now and recent events such as the Supreme Court decisions regarding the Arizona immigration law and the court s conclusion that Obamacare is a constitutional TAX have surely undermined any question of Obama s integrity.. The question the media and others are asking is whether Romney will choose Florida Senator Marco Rubio or Ohio Senator Rob Portman to be his running mate as Vice President.. If the Romney team believes it needs to peel away some of Obama s Hispanic voters, Rubio gets the nod, but Ohio is a very important swing State too.. Politically, there is a problem because Rubio s parents are not natural born Americans, having emigrated from Cuba.. This is the charge against Obama whose father was a citizen of Kenya by those who assert that he was ineligible to run for the presidency.. To ignore the issue validates Obama s claim to legitimacy.. Some not all Hispanics may favor Obama s end-run concerning the SCOTUS Arizona decision.. Using the Department of Homeland Security, Obama declared that it would not deport any of the children of illegal aliens who are here because their parents brought them.. They have grown up here and are, for all intents and purposes, Americans.. It is doubtful, too, that most Americans want them deported and I agree.. Sen.. Rubio recently had an autobiography published, An American Son , that tells the story of his Cuban ancestors and immediate family that fled that prison island to seek freedom and opportunity here in America.. I witnessed the first wave of Cuban immigrants fleeing the Castro regime while a student at the University of Miami in the late 1950s.. The Rubio autobiography is easy reading; a political document that tells the story of his decision to enter politics while pursuing a career in law.. His rise to be the Speaker of the Florida House is truly remarkable.. He is still a young man in his early forties and his ascent was rapid due to his mastery of political skills, the conservative principles he espouses, and the support he received from Florida politicians including former Governor Jeb Bush.. At this point Sen.. Portman is less known among Republicans, but if he is chosen that would quickly be overcome.. He has a very impressive resume, having served from 1993 to 2005 in the House.. In 2005 President Bush nominated him to be the United States Trade Representative.. The next year, Bush nominated him to be the Director of the Office of Management and he was confirmed in May 2006.. He was elected Senator in 2010.. In person Portman is very low key, an ideal partner for Romney who exhibits the same characteristic and has even been criticized for it.. Many Americans, however, may be tired of the theatrics of Obama at this point.. Portman s broad background in government is a plus because he answers reporter s questions calmly and fully.. My instinct tells me that the choice will be Sen.. Rob Portman.. For Republicans there is no choice in the forthcoming November elections.. Either Obama is defeated or he will continue to destroy the nation s economy and its standing in the world.. 2:26 PM.. 9 comments:.. Sunday, July 8, 2012.. I regard the next four months between now and the election to be the most dangerous that the nation has faced since the months before the outbreak of the Civil War.. I am concerned that President Obama, who has already declared a state of emergency in a recent Executive Order, will attempt to assert dictatorial powers and require U.. military and law enforcement authorities to enforce them.. You don t get to be a general by saying no to the Commander-in-Chief.. Witness the way Don t ask, don t tell was thrown under the bus by the most gay-friendly president in history.. Then there s the idiotic push to power naval ships with biofuels.. The Fort Hood murders required a lot of officers to ignore the obvious.. Et cetera.. My normal response to conspiracy theories is to dismiss them until I can find sufficient cause to give them credence.. That said President Obama is unlike any previous president this nation has ever had.. He is what those of us on the Right call a red diaper baby, raised from birth and mentored to embrace communism.. Including his mother and grandparents, all of his closest friends and advisors come from the extreme Left.. By word and by action, Obama s disregard for the Constitution, its separation of powers, and Americans suffering greatly from his policies, suggests that he is not beyond making the greatest grab for power using a bogus national emergency or manufactured crisis to declare martial law.. He has, moreover, recently issued three Executive Orders that (1) declare that the U.. is in a state of emergency, (2) empowers the federal government to seize anything and everything it wants to pursue martial law in the event of an attack, foreign or domestic, and (3) to control all the means of communication nationwide.. The biggest question facing Americans is whether the members of our military and our law enforcement authorities would obey him.. My bet is that they would not.. Millions of active duty and veterans swear an oath when they embark on active duty.. The oath for non-commissioned officers differs slightly in that it includes accepting orders from the President and the officers serving over them.. For officers, the oath is I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter.. So help me God.. The oath is for life! It does not end when you are discharged from active duty.. Law enforcement officers take a comparable oath.. As Gen.. Douglas McArthur said when he spoke to the corps at West Point, the oath for all who take it is about duty, honor, country.. There is an organization called.. Oath Keepers.. composed of those who have served or currently serve in our military, in law enforcement, and as fire fighters.. Here is their Declaration of Orders We Will Not Obey.. We will NOT obey any order to disarm the American people.. 2.. We will NOT obey any order to conduct warrantless searches of the American people, their homes, vehicles, papers, or effects such as warrantless house-to-house searches for weapons or persons.. 3.. We will NOT obey any order to detain American citizens as unlawful enemy combatants or to subject them to trial by military tribunal.. 4.. We will NOT obsey orders to impose martial law or a state of emergency on a state, or to enter with force into a state, without the express consent and invitation of that state s legislature and governor.. 5.. We will NOT obey orders to invade and subjugate any state that asserts its sovereignty and declares the national government to be in violation of the compact by which that state entered the Union.. 6.. We will NOT obey any order to blockage American cities, thus turning them into giant concentration camps.. 7.. We will NOT obey any order to force American citizens into any form of detention camps under any pretext.. 8.. We will NOT obey orders to assist or support the use of any foreign troops on U.. soil against the American people to keep the peace or to maintain control during any emergency, or under any other pretext.. We will consider such use of foreign troops against our people to be an invasion and an act of war.. 9.. We will NOT obey any orders to confiscate the property of the American people, including food and other essential supplies, under any emergency pretext whatever.. 10.. We will NOT obey any orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances.. Samuel Adams of U.. Revolutionary fame once said, "If ever the time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.. ".. The oath keepers and other patriots are all that stand between We the People and a government verging on evil.. Saturday, July 7, 2012.. The use of Executive Orders (EO) goes back to the first President, George Washington.. Every chief executive has issued them since then.. Some have been historic, but the latest Executive Orders of President Obama are downright scary.. The Executive Order signed on June 25 is titled Russian Highly Enriched Uranium and offers as its justification the fact that the accumulation of a large volume of weapons-usable fissile material in the territory of the Russian Federal continues to constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, and hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.. A national emergency? Over Russian nuclear material?.. Are we still in the Cold War?.. Are we facing another Cuban Missile Crisis?.. Are the Russians getting ready to launch a nuclear attack on the U.. ?.. Are the Russians provocateurs? Yes, but what else is new?.. The justification for this Executive Order is absurd.. The world is filled with nuclear weapons held by both our allies and our presumed enemies.. Having proclaimed a national emergency, why hasn t Obama gone on television to inform Americans? Because, like everything else he does, it is done with stealth.. A previous Executive Order issued on March 16th evoked an even stronger response from those paying attention to what the President is doing.. On March 22nd,.. Jeffrey T.. Kuhner,.. a columnist for The Washington Times, wrote:.. President Obama has given himself the powers to declare martial law especially in the event of a war with Iran.. It is a sweeping power grab that should worry every American.. On March 16th, the White House released an executive order, National Defense Resources Preparedness.. The document is stunning in its audacity and a flagrant violation of the Constitution.. It states that, in the case of a war or national emergency, the federal government has the authority to take over almost every aspect of American society.. Food, livestock, farming equipment, manufacturing, industry, energy, transportation, hospitals, health care facilities, water resources, defense and construction all of it could  ...   Only a relative few even understand the role of magnetic reversals on the planet s history.. Actually, the diminishing number of sunspots has been known for a while.. In June 2010, Stuart Clark, writing in The New Scientist, observed that For the past two years, the sunspots have mostly been missing.. Their absence, the most prolonged for nearly a hundred years, has taken even seasoned sun watchers by surprise.. The obvious often catches people by surprise.. The last Ice Age came on very swiftly and the next is likely to do so as well.. In the meantime, the current heat wave will capture everyone s attention.. 2:20 PM..

Third St.. , (1321).. South Orange, NJ 07079.. acaruba@aol.. 4:10 AM.. Tuesday, July 3, 2012.. The Fourth of July is a good time for a quick look back on the nation s history.. On July 5, 1776, John Adams wrote, Yesterday was decided the greatest question which was ever decided among men.. A resolution was passed unanimously that these United States are, and of right ought to be, free and independent states.. The day is passed.. The 4th of July 76 will be a memorable epoch in the history of America.. I am apt to believe it will be celebrated by succeeding generations, as the great anniversary festival.. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to Almighty God.. When I was a youngster in the 1940s in my little New Jersey hometown, the Fourth of July began in the morning with races for the various age groups of children, was followed by a circus in the afternoon, and finished with a great fireworks display.. In the years since other events such as a concert before the fireworks and baking contests in the morning were added.. It is as typically American as one can imagine.. It is a far cry from 1774 when King George III of England said of the American Revolution, The die is cast.. The colonies must either triumph or submit.. We did not submit.. America began its road to nationhood with the 1781 Articles of Confederation, but by 1787 it was clear to everyone that America needed a federal government to tend to the wider common needs of thirteen States and those to come.. Today, the Constitution is being tested as never before by a President who be king if he could.. His disdain for the division of powers between the branches of our government is matched by his contempt of everyday Americans.. The U.. Constitution is the oldest functioning document of national governance still in use.. There have been amendments over the years, initially with the first ten known as the Bill of Rights.. They were insisted upon by the original States before they would ratify it.. To this day, England has no constitution.. In May 1787 fifty-five men, ranging in age from twenty-six to eighty-one gathered in Philadelphia and spent 116 days putting together a Constitution that deliberately slowed the process by which legislation could be passed, knowing how the passions and enthusiasms of men, often ill-conceived, could result in a bad outcome.. Was there ever a nation so blessed to have men like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and Benjamin Franklin in the same room?.. In Federalist Paper #1, written in 1787, Alexander Hamilton wrote, It has frequently remarked that it seems to have been reserved to the people of this country, by their conduct and example, to decide the important question, whether societies of men are really capable or not of establishing good government from reflection and choice, or whether they are forever destined to depend for their political constitutions on accident and force.. It was not a perfect nation.. To achieve a Constitution, the seeds of the Civil War four score and seven years later were sown in its oblique acknowledgement of slavery, a major compromise at the time.. Beyond slavery there were issues involving the conduct of commerce that strained relations between the northern and southern States.. The original thirteen States feared that the federal government would grow too powerful.. The nation is now composed of fifty independent sovereign republics, but in the case of Obamacare, twenty-seven States opposed it before the Supreme Court.. Short of its repeal, their only recourse is nullification, refusing to enforce it.. The latest constitutional crisis could have been avoided if the President and his Party had not deliberately lied to Americans, saying repeatedly that Obamacare was not a tax and then admitting that it was before the Supreme Court.. That is perfidious behavior worthy only of despots.. So, this year on the Fourth of July Americans are asking if the Constitution still protects them in a time:.. # When the national debt exceeds $17 trillion,.. # When the administration will not permit States to protect our southern borders,.. # When our military has been reduced in strength and capability,.. # When 0.. 038% of atmospheric carbon dioxide is declared a pollutant by the EPA,.. # When the administration opposes requiring people prove they are citizens in order to vote,.. # When the administration says it will not enforce the Defense of Marriage Act,.. # When the government can compel you to purchase whatever it wants you to and fine you if you don t.. The answer is that the Constitution does protect Americans.. We still have the vote.. Now we must ensure that everyone understands what is at stake because America has been falling prey to stealth socialism for a very long time.. We must restore the fundamental principles of limited government, fiscal prudence, and individual rights.. And we shall.. Happy Fourth of July!.. 11:45 AM.. 7 comments:.. Monday, July 2, 2012.. America's Ugly Mood.. The present ugly mood in the nation is directly traceable to the man who is the worst president ever elected to that high office, Barack Hussein Obama.. His utter lack of regard for our guiding instrument of governance, the Constitution, is rivaled by his contempt for all Americans.. The June 25th Rasmussen Reports polls found that 55% wanted the U.. Supreme Court to uphold Arizona s immigration law.. (It struck down most of it but retained the state s right to authorize police to request proof of citizenship.. ) 54% favored repeal of Obama s healthcare law and, as we know, it was retained based on being deemed a tax.. Elections always exacerbate the nation s mood and, in a nation that is so evenly divided between conservatives and liberals, their outcome has often been decided by independents , voters that swing in either direction depending on events and candidates.. It s a toss of the coin whether Obamacare or the economy will be the driving issue of the November elections.. A look back at American history provides an answer to why the economy is suffering though frankly it may offer little comfort.. That said, it is still worth knowing where we came from to reach this present point.. America has been through previous recessions and even a Great Depression, but what is generally unknown is that they were the result of presidents and congresses that did not understand the workings of the nation s free market economy.. It was Lincoln who put in place tariffs to protect American manufacturing and they stayed in place even through Franklin Roosevelt s struggle to deal with the Great Depression.. Following the end of World War II, the average U.. import tariffs on durable goods fell from almost 30% to around 8%.. The virtual removal of tariffs and the embrace of global free trade are at the heart of the nation s present financial crisis.. As Martin Seiff, the author of That Should Be Us , an analysis of the nation s present crisis, wrote, The Republican Party of Abraham Lincoln and Dwight D.. Eisenhower was not a party of free trade.. Every one of the ten Republican presidents who succeeded Lincoln remained committed to his tariffs policy.. A tariff in fact acts as a tax on imported goods, but a tariff simultaneously acts as a tax break and a huge incentive to domestic investors to invest their money in domestic U.. manufacturing instead international investors love to invest in an industrial economy that is protected by tariffs.. It was not the abstract theory of democracy or the philosophical superiority of freedom that attracted more than thirty millions immigrants to the United States in the seventy years from 1860 to 1930; it was the prospect of a better, wealthier life.. Democracy flourished in the United States throughout that century for the same reason that it failed in Germany in early 1930s.. It failed in Weimar Germany because the economy collapsed, not just once, but repeatedly.. Weimar s disasters plunged scores of millions of previously decent people into destitution and desperation.. To put the past and present in context, Seiff noted that, during the long period when the nation s manufacturing base was protected by tariffs, Automobiles, the modern assembly line, manned flight, the eradication of polio through the Sabin and Salk vaccines, the eradication of smallpox within the United States, manned space flight, steelmaking, the largest, most efficient ship-building industry the world has ever seen, the largest air force in history, the largest navy in history, jet airlines, nuclear energy, the oil industry, the electric light bulb, television, electrical power generating stations, alternating current for long-distance electrical power, transcontinental railroads, the refrigeration industry, the air conditioning industry, and vacuum cleaners.. And compared to all that, what do we celebrate today? Would you believe, Facebook?.. Our economic policies under presidents from Kennedy to Obama have abandoned the protection of our manufacturers, the creators of real value and real wealth.. Today, we import much of what we use from nations like China that protect theirs with tariffs and other measures.. Wal Mart and others offering cheap goods have become China s Trojan horse because we no longer manufacture them here.. The lessons of history cannot be ignored.. The embrace of multiculturalism , the failure to protect our borders from massive illegal immigration, the imposition of high taxes, and the increase in government regulation is killing America.. Elected on the promise of hope and change , Obama has destroyed the hopes of millions of Americans.. There is a chance to end this in November, but it will be independent voters on whom the future depends.. Alan Caruba, July 2012.. 2:44 PM.. Sunday, July 1, 2012.. Obama's Constitutional Crisis.. In 1832, the threat of nullification by States that opposed tariffs on imported goods came close to bringing about a civil war.. Thirty years later as cries for the abolition of slavery reached a fever pitch the War Between the States would begin.. Today, in the wake of the Supreme Court decision that found that the Affordable Health Care Act Obamacare is constitutional and thereby the law of the land.. Republican Governors are lining up to say they will not obey it.. Not only has President Obama and the Democrat Party imposed an enormously unpopular law on the nation, they have initiated a huge constitutional crisis.. Nullification is a constitutional theory that gives an individual state the right to declare null and void any law passed by the United States Congress which the State deems unacceptable and unconstitutional.. In a debate in the late 1700s, both James Madison and Thomas Jefferson, in the Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions (1798) came down on the side of nullification if a State concluded that the federal government had overstepped its limits of jurisprudence.. In ruling that Obamacare cannot use the Commerce Clause as its justification, the Supreme Court kicked the Act back to Congress, ruling that it is a tax and that Congress has the right to place such taxes on the citizens of the nation.. The Obama administration maintained that Obamacare was not a tax until the case was argued before the Court.. It then conceded that it was.. The least troublesome response is to wait for November to remove for office every Senator and Representative who voted for Obamacare and who is up for reelection along with Obama.. The most troublesome response would reflect the crisis that occurred when Andrew Jackson was President.. On December 11, 1832, Jackson issued a proclamation that he would use force to uphold the right of Congress to enact tariffs which were widely seen as a burden on the southern States.. Several compromises ensued.. Thus, President Obama has set the stage for a major constitutional crisis.. He could, in theory, declare martial law to defend Obamacare and this is not just an idle threat because, as of this writing,.. several State Governors have already announced they will not enforce it.. Florida s Governor, Rick Scott, has declared his State will not comply with the overhaul of the nation s health care system its nationalization by the federal government.. Earlier, the Missouri legislature passed a bill in its House of Representatives declaring Obamacare null and void for the second time.. It would prohibit the establishment of an exchange without the consent by vote of the people of Missouri.. In Louisiana, Gov.. Bobby Jindal has declared his opposition to Obamacare as has Wisconsin s Gov.. Scott Walker, both of whom urged other States to refuse to implement the law.. Just as South Carolina led the opposition during President Jackson s time, Sen.. Jim DeMint has called on every governor to stop implementing the health care exchanges.. Despite the Supreme Court s ruling that states can opt out of a Medicaid expansion, there is nothing Jindal and Walker can do to prevent health insurance exchanges from being set up in their States.. As if President Obama has not already driven the nation s economy to the brink of collapse and his administration has opposed enforcement of the Defense of Marriage Act, and has opposed Arizona s efforts to secure its borders and its right to protect its citizens from illegal aliens, Obama has now brought about a crisis comparable to that which launched the Civil War.. As the Fourth of July approaches, the current President has created a firestorm of opposition that initially led to the Tea Party movement and the 2010 midterm elections that returned power to the Republican Party in the House of Representatives.. Major forces are emerging and aligning to stop Obamacare anyway they can.. This is occurring as a case before a Florida court challenges Obama s eligibility to be on that State s ballot.. Florida law is unique in that it gives the average voter greater freedom to challenge eligibility and fraud than other States.. More than a hundred legal cases nationwide have been brought over his eligibility.. The Constitution specifically states that the President must be a natural born citizen with both parents being citizens of the United States.. Obama s father was a citizen of Kenya.. Buckle up, it s going to be a bumpy ride.. Alan Caruba, 2012.. 4:15 PM.. Newer Posts..

    Descriptive info: Caruba Under Attack by SPLC.. 10 comments:.. Dave s Daily Day Dream.. Way to go, Alan! You must being doing something right when those creeps come after you - typically with the wrong information.. July 11, 2012 11:43 AM.. Thank you, Dave.. Libs always have a hard time with the facts and the truth.. July 11, 2012 12:44 PM.. I M JEALOUS!.. and all I ever got for seven years of blogging was one lousy e-mail death FATWA from British Muslims in 2007 :-).. July 11, 2012 1:19 PM.. Well, Ronbo, you re man enough to admit it.. If you get around anyone with a British accent, you better be packing heat.. In truth, it s kind of fun to be denounced by the Lefty wackoes.. July 11, 2012 2:25 PM.. Alan, the SPLC are a bunch of thugs who have made it their mission in life to shoot down any Conservative they can, whilst hiding behind their law firm.. If they can use the racist label, all the better.. They ve been going after many Conservative blogs, funded by their fellow liberals who are scared of their own shadows.. The SPLC is nothing but a front for Liberals who live in ivory towers and scare easily.. Their leader lives the life of a King on money not earned by him.. You only have to Google  ...   against Liberal Stupidity.. Here, have a donation for your success!.. July 12, 2012 8:08 PM.. Zamir, thank you for your donation to Warning Signs.. Now if I could just get the rest of the folks who visit daily, weekly and monthly to do so as well!.. July 13, 2012 5:10 AM.. In a series of articles last year, Caruba lashed out at immigrants, Muslims, the LGBT community and, of course, Obama.. There s the -real- issue the SPLC are trying to advocate (albeit poorly).. They re a civil rights group, so naturally they have to throw a bone to their idiotic investors and contributors.. My response is, as always, a matter of Free Speech.. Alan, your posts need no defense because they were of your opinion and, in many cases, facts.. You are not an elected official.. You are not a policymaker.. Therefore.. SPLC can shove it where the sun don t shine.. Slandering both a reputable institution AND an organization of veterans (which I am a member of) just to take you, a simple citizen, to task should be the basis for enough lawsuits to bury that disgusting organization.. July 13, 2012 12:12 PM.. Thank you, Zamir.. I won t sue them because I prefer to ignore them.. Like you say, I write a combination of opinion buttrussed by facts.. July 13, 2012 1:56 PM..

July 10, 2012 4:51 PM.. from the viewpoint of the American Communist Party, Comrade Obama has done a great job destroying capitalism - In fact, for all practical purposes, the CPUSA and the Democrat Party have merged - and this fact is well known to the majority of Americans likely to vote, despite the best efforts of the Lamestream Media.. So I m very much encouraged by the fact that even Russia never voted in Communist government.. Nevertheless, the Communists  ...   you said, the next four months will be very dangerous, because a Commie like Obama will do anything to remain in power and America may see its own Red October.. July 11, 2012 7:13 AM.. Janice Kearney.. Too many Obama lovers are more afraid of being labeled racist than they are of calling it what it is.. And too many of them are paying more attention to what s going on with the Kardashians than will ever pay attention to the big picture of O s dismal performance as you ve laid it out here.. They have very short attention spans and even shorter memories.. July 11, 2012 8:30 AM..
