(Editor’s Note: My apologies for the tardiness of this post, but the internet is still spotty here in Hawaii since the severing of the fiber optic cable back to the mainland late Monday evening. Reports that the service has been fully restored by Oceanic Time Warner Cable are not quite accurate as they are having serious issues with non-responsive servers. I will continue to post as the intermittent service allows.)
I understand that Beck doesn’t like to cover certain topics until he can prove without a shadow of a doubt that he ain’t wearing a tinfoil hat like the rest of us and espousing conspiracy theories. That being said, it’s nice to see him catching up on some of the issues and events that many of us bloggers have known about for YEARS; namely Prairie Fire – The Weather Underground’s Manifesto. Go here for a downloadable/embeddable Scribd copy of it.
You gotta love it when Saul Alinsky sycophant Chris (the tingle has reached his brain) Matthews tries to verbally spar with Rep. Paul Ryan (R-MI) about tax increases, numbers, math, red ink, black ink, plans, maps, etc. Chris was so mentally outgunned that I almost felt sorry for him while he was trying his damnedest to make the republicans look bad, twist answers, and blame Bush.
Chris either hasn’t seen this chart or he is lying about everything being Bush’s fault. Make no mistake, Bush 43 ranks very near the top of my least favorite presidents’ list, but let’s give Obama the credit he is due when it comes to flushing our money down the toilet and selling our descendants into financial slavery. Let’s also give the Democrats a massive portion of the blame when they took control of the Congress in 2006 and wrote massive spending bills.
Rep. Paul Ryan speaking at the American Enterprise Institute about the American Roadmap (7.21.2010):
Arthur’s book talks about a “new culture war,” initiated by the Progressivist elite, but there’s something in it to be thankful for. Our current leaders with their ideological agenda have awakened America! They have reminded us of all we have to be grateful for. We relish the opportunity to take back America’s heritage of freedom!
And here’s my final point: the case for our founding principles and for free market democracy has always been based on a moral proposition—the equal dignity of every person—the capacity to control or guide our own lives and to grow in self-responsibility to our families, our country, and our Maker. Progressivist plans for a social welfare state are rooted in materialism. They misunderstand human happiness and suppose it can be purchased with redistributed dollars. We seek fulfillment in achievement and work… or earned success… our flourishing in self-government under a limited constitution.
Those who wish to replace the principles that made America exceptional have posed their challenge on several fronts at once—economic, social, international, and even philosophical. All are interconnected, because the moral foundation that supports freedom in one area supports freedom in all. This is a mighty trial over the very meaning and dignity of the human person. In the political domain, the issue comes down to this: Is government to be master or servant?
My message is sober but my confidence in America is boundless. Once Americans understand that this is the great question of the day, they will, as always, take their stand upon the rock of our foundation of freedom.
The liberal left, as represented by members of Netroots Nation this past weekend, appear to be experiencing a level of angst about Glenn Beck (American patriots) that we have been experiencing for two years now over Obama and his crew of thugs, and fascist agenda. Glenn takes some time to explain that YOU should not lose hope because YOU are making a difference and that we have collectively gotten under the skin of the social Utopians. My own personal thoughts include 1.) they have no idea how freaked out they should be, and 2.) how much they are cluelessly assisting the global elites in their own destruction.

Now I know why Geithner and his buddies allow Liz Warren to keep talking out loud about what has happened in the financial world, and what is still happening.
The progressive left loves her, and I must admit, she does have some financial common sense stances that I agree with.
In the following video from NRN, she speaks of a loophole put in the bankruptcy law passed in 2005 that was left wide open when Dodd and Frank wrote the next chapter in “financial regulation” that works the system to protect the insiders and screws the taxpayer.
Here’s a very interesting backstory on Geithner vs. Warren when it comes to the person to head up the new Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection and how the progressives that support Liz Warren would consider her being passed over as yet another betrayal.
Though Treasury has tried to downplay the Warren drama, this is an important moment for Obama. Progressive reformers are already defining a potential rejection of Warren as a White House betrayal. Simon Johnson, the former chief economist of the International Monetary Fund, writes,
This can now go only one of two ways.
1. Elizabeth Warren gets the job. Bridges are mended and the White House regains some political capital. Secretary Geithner is weakened slightly but he’ll recover.
2. Someone else gets the job, despite Treasury’s claims that Elizabeth Warren was not blocked. The deception in this scenario would be nauseating — and completely blatant. “Everyone was considered on their merits” and “the best candidate won” will convince who exactly?
He adds, “Failing to appoint Elizabeth Warren would be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. It will go down in the history books as a turning point — downwards — for this administration.”
If Obama dumps Warren, the White House will justifiably enrage reformers and progressives — that is, part of its base. If Obama nominates Warren, the White House will have a major fight with banks and GOPers. “That may be a fight worth having,” a Treasury Department official says, “but that’s up to the White House to decide.” It’s a mighty big decision.
UPDATE #2: Fox News report of the State Department issuing a travel warning for three border cities.
On June 30th, shots were fired in Juarez and they hit the El Paso court house, and the Obamas were partying the night away. Now the Los Zetas drug cartel has seized two ranches in the Laredo, Texas area in their continuing invasion of America. Thankfully the ranchers were allowed to evacuate their property without harm, but can anybody tell me why they had to leave their property because a foreigner told them they had to at gunpoint. Isn’t that considered an invasion?
Anybody in Congress listening, anybody? I guess property rights are as obsolete as the Constitution that Obama keeps saying is flawed.
WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO BRING HIM UP ON IMPEACHMENT CHARGES FOR HIS BROKEN OATH TO PROTECT AMERICANS AND AMERICA’S BORDERS?
In what could be deemed an act of war against the sovereign borders of the United States, Mexican drug cartels have seized control of at least two American ranches inside the U.S. territory near Laredo, Texas.
Two sources inside the Laredo Police Department confirmed the incident is unfolding and they would continue to coordinate with U.S. Border Patrol today. “We consider this an act of war,” said one police officer on the ground near the scene. There is a news blackout of this incident at this time and the sources inside Laredo PD spoke on the condition of anonymity.
Word broke late last night that Laredo police have requested help from the federal government regarding the incursion by the Los Zetas. It appears that the ranch owners have escaped without incident but their ranches remain in the hands of the blood thirsty cartels.
Laredo Border Patrol is conducting aerial surveillance over the ranches to determine the best way to regain control of the U.S. ranches, according to the Laredo Police department.
The approximate location of the U.S. ranches are10 miles northwest of I-35 off Mines Road and Minerales Annex Road. Just off 1472 (Mines road) near Santa Isabel Creek south of the city of Laredo, Texas.
The Los Zetas drug cartel is an offshoot of the elite Mexican military trained in special ops. The mercenary organization is said to include members of corrupt Mexican Federales, politicians as well as drug traffickers. The group was once part of the Gulf cartel, but has since splintered and now directly competes with the Gulf cartel for premium drug smuggling routes in the Texas region.
The new leader of Los Zetas is Heriberto “El Lazca” Lazcano and is considered the most violent paramilitary group in Mexico by the DEA.
Recently the drug organization has kidnapped tourists, infiltrated local municipalities and continues to smuggle narcotics into a very hungry U.S. market.
The violence south of the border continues to spin out of control and has left Nuevo Laredo, Mexico on virtual lockdown with businesses refusing to open the doors. Last week a particularly violent attack by the Los Zetas included the use of grenades and resulted in a dozen deaths and 21 injuries.
The hostile takeover of the ranches has met with silence with local and national media; however sources say they could be waiting to report the stories once the ranches are back in U.S. control. This journalist questions if this was a Middle Eastern terrorist attack if the media would sit on their hands.
Stay tuned for updates reports throughout the weekend.
The bloodbath continues along our southern border and now word is coming in that Los Zetas, the highly trained killers formerly with the Gulf Cartel, have crossed into the United States and taken over at least two ranches in the Laredo, Texas area. I am receiving word that the owners of the ranches have evacuated without being harmed. The source is law enforcement in the area.
(Update 2 story is now 100% confirmed by second source within the Laredo Police Department)
The FBI is advising law enforcement officers across the country that a Texas cell of Los Zetas — an increasingly powerful arm of the Mexican Gulf Cartel drug trafficking syndicate — has acquired a secluded ranch where it trains its members to “neutralize” competitors in the United States.
In order to ensure its share of the lucrative illegal drug trade, the cartel’s members reportedly are operating north of the border to collect debts and spy on competitors. They have also protected cocaine and heroin shipments that were bound for Houston, where they were repackaged and shipped on to Alabama, Delaware, Georgia and Michigan, according to the FBI.
The information, which was disseminated Monday to state, local and federal agencies, does not provide specifics, such as the location of the ranch, but includes a notation that the information came from reliable FBI contacts.
Trainees are reportedly taught about home invasions, firearms and ways to run vehicles off the road in order to kidnap occupants who owe drug debts.
The Zetas have achieved almost mythical status in Mexico, as the small band of military deserters has become a managing partner for the Gulf Cartel, terrorizing rivals with beheadings, torture and mass killings.
They are said to have a presence in large swaths of Mexico and are often described as being the most ruthless gangsters in Mexico’s underworld.
Gerald Celente’s take on the financial reform bill written by those two great capitalists, Chris Dodd and Barney Frank, and the “looming crash of 2010”. Mr. Celente understands that we have to get Wall Street out of the White House. The numbers, once again, do not lie.
Delaware; land of Joe Biden (36 years in the Senate), and Rep. Mike Castle (17 years in the House), who voted FOR the T.A.R.P., the Omnibus, Serve America Act, Credit Card Accountability Act, Cap and Trade, and the Fin Reg Reform Bill (among others). Considering Castle’s inability to vote for limited government like a true Republican (he votes with Obama 6 of 10 votes), there might actually be a bigger upset than Scott Brown’s resounding defeat of Martha Coakley rapidly approaching The First State when tea party endorsed Christine O’Donnell spanks Castle with the help of impoverished Delawareans and YOU – the rest of America.
A taste of Christine’s Constitutional conservatism when she was interviewed by Mark Levin on June 24, 2010:
According to an interview that Scott Rasmussen gave on July 21st with Rick Jensen, Christine could actually win Biden’s senate seat (and give it back to Delawareans). Christine has surpassed democrat Chris Coons in the polls, whilst Mike’s numbers have been steadily dropping against Coons.
A woman states that she is very emotional about the country being ripped apart by the pResident and his crew, that it isn’t right, and then she asks Lt. Col. Allen West, “what will you do to heal us?”.
