We hold this truth to be self evident, ABSOLUTELY ! ! !

    Obama is setting a weak example for the rest of the world. He hates this country and wants to pull it down to third world status.

    And the Republicans locked him out of their national convention in Tampa, FL for being "out of touch."

    Out of touch, perhaps, thinking we will return to the way it was. We will not ! The time to support Israel is close at hand. The secular corp elite, entities, weather breathing or not, through manipulation of the children, letting punk ass kids and bleeding hearts take the helm of this nation is sickening ! The city of lost angels, and the media elite, for greed sake, spit in the eyes of all that is decent. Even Fox news and their Catholics talking catholic talk, are jockeying for position. They themselves fuel the fires of deception also. Now is not the time for debate ! Those in the wings whom Putin fears, hoping they will not regain control, are needed now more than ever before.
    Yes I like Ron Paul, but he lacks assertiveness, and a commanding presence of authority. Those that have not been tried, through the anvil of experience, facing the storms, should not be at the helm of our nation. This is not a time of peace, but of global domination by the corp elite, setting at odds and weakening nations who will not bow to their will. Treason committed in the highest levels of our nation is made evident. We are a nation founded upon Christian fundamentals and principals. Get those punk ass kids, Islamist, hat mongering socialist, out of office and regain control. We need a Patton or the likes thereof to right this ship and trim the sails before the worst of the storm comes !

    Great quote. But here's the larger question; why does the US and A feel that it needs to be the World's police? Stay out of other people's conflicts and MYOB. Truthfully I think it's just thinly veiled guise for expanding Imperialism.

    Of course after things are completely screwed up, Canada gets to clean up the mess.

    What isn't an 'American interest' outside of America? It has been the excuse for waging perpetual war wherever Washington deems it so. As long as the individual States and the people themselves do not keep Washington DC in their Constitutional box, arbitrary power will continue to be exercised at the expense of all of us -- and the rest of the world! Wake up, Americans, please!! We have not yet begun to reap what we have sown...

    It is the corp elite who reap, ( rape ) this nation of its moral fiber. Keep Black water or any other such mercenary force off our streets. they are only loyal to the dollar and the elite whom they serve. Check all punk ass, home grown agendas, planting subversive behavior within the armed forces at the door. All none freeborn sovereigns serving in the forces, should be separated and scrutinized in the highest degree. Check all punk ass attitudes in the C.O and NCO ranks, and all little hitler egos. They are to serve and protect Americans. We are loyal to Americans and our Constitution, We do not serve to earn a living, But to serve and protect at cost of our lives. I was raised with the highest degree of moral fiber and honesty and loyalty to our nation that my Father and Mother could instill in a child. I am not black, white, yellow, green or purple ! I am a American to the core ! And all those in the service of our nation should know this. We pledge our loyalty to America and our Constitution. Pride tempered with humility, not in any glorying of spilling blood. But with compassion and love of all that is decent and worthy of honest respect. It is not Americans that wish to police the world, but the interest of the elite and corp agendas. Manipulated by bleeding hearts in politics, being lead by those with degrees in passiveness. Thinking they can moderate peace and stability by standing in the middle wanting to give in to punk ass kids and their run a-muck perverted behavior. There is more than being screwed up that is going on. And we need no punk ass attitudes from our socalled allies.

    Watchman 13 you are obviously a servomechanism for someone else's ideas. For one thing you have no racial self identification and therefore do not exist. You are also ignorant because you think that there is a racial or genotype known as "American." There is no such thing as an American. There is just a Balkanized land controlled by minority parasites (communism, afrocentrism and moslemism) that are enslaving the white race; after first terrorizing the weakest of them into proclaiming that they have no race, no heritage, no tribe...nothing. Therefore those “americans” have no loyalty just like watchman 13...He/she/it is a traitor because he/she/it believes only in "americanism" a concept continuously reinterpreted by the controlling minority parasites. All the easiest psychological subservience concepts, repetitiously hammered into the vacuous minds of the most stupid people living in Balkanized America, are mouthed by communist media propagandist dupes, like wachman 13. He is the classical invisible freak produced by the minority parasite's media propaganda. Encourage creatures such as wachman 13 to mouth their borrowed platitudes and soft orphan sentimentality thereby exposing another category of wasted, effeminate subhumans, fit only for annihilation. Don't bother exploiting them unless you stoop to the communist evil of micromanaging the weakest. Wachman 13 and his lot are already moving in the slave parade goose stepping into the gulag’s oblivion. May he and his, rot in hell!

    "Those who hope that we shall move away from the socialist path will be greatly disappointed. Every part of our program of perestroika … is fully based on the principle of more socialism and more democracy. ... I would like to be clearly understood ... we, the Soviet people, are for socialism. ... We want more socialism and, therefore, more democracy. ... More socialism means more democracy, openness and collectivism in everyday life. … We will proceed toward better socialism rather than away from it. We are saying this honestly, without trying to fool our own people or the world. Any hopes that we will begin to build a different, non-socialist society and go over to the other camp are unrealistic and futile. Those in the West who expect us to give up socialism will be disappointed. ... It’s my conviction that the human race has entered a stage where we are all dependent on each other. No other country or nation should be regarded in total separation from another, let alone pitted against another. That’s what our communist vocabulary calls internationalism and it means promoting universal human values."

    "The commie POS obama, in the US White House, arrogantly mocks those who believe in the same laws for everybody and the Constitution. He publicly admits that his minority parasite nomenklatura is above all laws which are written by that nomenklatura and enforced against the 80% white majority.
    Obama’s lawyer, Alexandra Hill, has admitted that the image of his purported birth certificate that Obama revealed to America in a press conference last year is a forgery. But none of that matters or affects his constitutional eligibility to be President.
    Dan Crosby writes for The Daily Pen, April 12, 2012, that a suit was brought in a New Jersey court challenging Obama’s right to have his name on the November ballot, due to a lack of authenticated eligibility of his "natural born citizen" status.
    Obama’s attorney Alexandra Hill admitted that there is no evidence that the birth certificate the White House put online is authentic and that it likely was "manufactured." Hill then proclaimed the forged birth certificate cannot be used as evidence to confirm Obama's lack of natural born citizenship status and the issue therefore is "irrelevant to his placement on the ballot."
    Now, that's in-your-face hutzpah.
    Adding insult upon injury, Hill went on to contort reasoning further by implying that Obama needs only invoke his political popularity, not legal qualifications, in order to be a candidate.
    Hill, of Genova, Burn & Giantomasi Attorneys in Newark, then made a motion to dismiss the ballot challenge arguing that Obama’s lack of natural-born citizenship status was not relevant to being placed on the New Jersey presidential ballot because no law exists in New Jersey which says that a candidate’s appearance on the ballot must be supported by evidence of natural born citizenship status. Only the U.S. constitution restricts eligibility to hold the office of president to natural born citizens.
    New Jersey Administrative Law Judge Jeff S. Masin denied the motion to dismiss and the case proceeded to trial.
    At the hearing, attorney for the plaintiffs, Mario Apuzzo, correctly argued that Obama, under the Constitution, has to be a “natural born Citizen” and that he has not met his burden of showing that he is eligible to be on the New Jersey primary ballot by showing that he is indeed a “natural born Citizen.” He argued that Obama has shown no authenticate evidence to the New Jersey Secretary of State demonstrating who he is and that he was born in the United States. Apuzzo also argued that as a matter of law, Obama is not a “natural born Citizen” because he was born to a father who was not a U.S. citizen.
    Despite Hill's admission, the New Jersey court ruled in favor of Obama.
    The Daily Pen's editor Penbrook Johannson explains:
    “Sadly, regardless of her moral deficiency, Hill is legally justified. Obama's eligibility is a separate matter than the charges of forgery and fraud. Of course, we have evidence that he is not eligible. But, evidence of forgery by as yet unidentified counterfeiters working on behalf of Obama is not what legally excludes Obama from appearing on a ballot, by itself, until some authority is willing to consider this as evidence of forgery on its merit as an indication of actual ineligibility in a court of legal authority. Until some court of competent jurisdiction is willing to hear evidence of forgery and fraud, you can’t legally punish a political candidate for that crime which has not been proven that they committed. However, since Obama is not eligible because of a lack of authenticated evidence to the contrary, he could be held off the ballot for that reason.
    "He does not exist as a president except in the imagination of those who blindly support him. Whereas he is politically desired by a transient consensus, his legality is unresolved until a responsible court makes a determination. This is the essence of our crisis. Our nation exists in a state of non-authorized identity. Obama is just some guy calling himself a president and living in the White House without the confirmative authority to do so."
    To conclude, despite mounting evidence that he is a usurper, until a court with jurisdiction considers this case, Obama’s eligibility status remains in limbo. What a sorry day for America.
    And of course, none of this is being reported by the useless pro-obama Establishment Media.

    "This evil is so overwhelming that many people today scarcely imagine it possible. It is our society’s greatest weakness; the denial of ultimate malice.
    Our current governmental system has adopted a policy of open theater, in which the two sides of the false paradigm now barely hide their farcical opposition to each other. Their rhetoric no longer obscures their acts of political collusion in the destruction of our founding principles and Constitutional protections. In the past several years they have acted in the best interests of corporate minorities and moneyed elites without hiding their intentions towards globalism and the destruction of sovereignty, fearlessly spitting on the redresses of the public. All of this while they arm themselves to the teeth with billion-plus round stockpiles of ammunition and Orwellian surveillance technologies. Yet, foolish subsections of our populace still argue that the government is a “product of elections”, and is “made up of Americans for Americans”. Even if we do not see them as an enemy, they certainly see us as such.
    Our financial system is a stampeding procession of nightmare fueled blood-drenched circus freaks dancing in an ether driven haze of pungent absurdity. It is as if our economy has become a morbid parody of itself, like a queasy piece of horror/comedy cinema. We are so far along in the collapse of our markets that the banksters no longer see the need to hide the fraud. With the advent of the Labor Scandal, governments, central banks, corporate financiers, all flaunt their criminality with pride. Yet, some Americans still clasp their naïve hopes to a chance of fiscal recovery.
    To fight against an evil of this magnitude takes more than anger, or physical preparation, or organization. It takes personal exploration, a steeling of one’s heart, and a conquering of one's shortcomings.
    Tyranny, true tyranny, thrives on our selective awareness, and our ability to bend our minds and our vision to avoid seeing that which is really there. In the end, victory over tyranny is less about guns, bombs, mass dissent, and civil fury; it instead requires an acceptance of the dark side of the world, and the unwavering will of honorable men ready to face it. That is to say, the defeat of tyranny begins and ends in the mind.
    In America today, many minds are not ready to handle the trials ahead. Maybe it’s the ease of several generations of uninterrupted prosperity. Maybe it’s the Babyboomers. Maybe it’s Generation X. Maybe it’s the public education system. Maybe it’s the water. Maybe it’s all of the above and more. At this point, we have little time to debate symptomatic culprits. It is time to go to the root of the problem, and cut it out.
    What we need is a foundation, a set of “personal rules for combat” when engaging a tyrannical establishment. This “code” should above all else provide a way of mentally and spiritually confronting one’s own weaknesses and presumptions. Dictators and oligarchs are not our primary concern. Our inner state is.
    Rule #1: Stop Waiting For Others To Fight The Battle For You
    If you want to put an end to totalitarianism, you can’t sit around waiting for other people to solve the problem for you. The greatest downfall of any political campaign (even when led by a liberty minded candidate) is the centralization of popular focus on a single man. There is no knight in shining armor coming to lead the Liberty Movement to the promised land. These unrealistic expectations will only end in disappointment and nihilism. The solution starts not with others, but with YOU. Where do you contribute to freedom? What actions have you taken? Who have you inspired? What ideas have you offered? What project have you organized, struggled for, sweat for? Take the reigns of your own destiny and finally join the fight instead of perusing the internet longing for a guru to hand you a mission.
    Rule #2: Believe In Something Greater Than Yourself - Abandon Childish Cynicism
    This is where we get all “spiritualized”, which for the typical cynic is a rather gooey and uncomfortable affair. If accepting a higher purpose to the universe and your own existence is too much for you, then at least consider deeply the future of humanity in general. Think not of what mankind is today, but what mankind could be tomorrow if you make it so. Know that there is an indelible good within us, though it may be difficult to see at times. Cradle that spark, and champion its return. It is not enough to oppose tyranny. One must know exactly what he is fighting for in order to triumph.
    Cynics do not make history, or change a country for the better. They are the forgotten dust wafting about in the wayward attics of time.
    Rule #3: Deal With Your Fear, Or It Will Be Used Against You
    A subjugating government’s size, military might, technological superiority, and overall gravitas are irrelevant. The fight will come whether we want it or not. Accept the fact that the fight is coming to YOU; your fear of it does not change the eventuality of it. Wars, especially those waged for freedom, are won by the will, not by arms or technology. Not by laser guided missiles and predator drones. Tyrants always have the advantage. They always have the upper hand. They win when they are able to convince the masses that this advantage makes them invincible and that resistance is a futile exercise. They lose when the people could care less about the size of the guns pointed at them.
    All men are afraid to take risks, especially mortal risks. However, great men understand the necessity of risk in the pursuit of that which is right. Fear should play no part in your life, ever.
    Rule #4: Understand The Nature Of Tyrants
    Overcoming fear is one thing. Being overconfident is another. Understand that the evil you face is capable of absolutely any depravity in its lust for absolute control. Understand that the crimes you will one day witness in your battle to dethrone the autocrats are designed to rattle your will and eradicate your resolve. Know that to attain a free country you must struggle through social, economic, and physical carnage you never thought possible before. Be ready, psychologically and emotionally, for anything…
    Rule #5: Dump Nihilists And Obstructionists By The Wayside
    You can’t save everybody, and you certainly can’t impart a sense of greater purpose on cowards, weaklings, and nihilists. These people are inherently self centered, and seek only to prolong the ease and length of their own existences regardless of the cost to others. Nihilists in particular are so inwardly and subconsciously ashamed of their own weaknesses that they go out of their way, often obsessively, to project those weaknesses on the whole of. The have to believe that if they are not capable of fighting back, no one else can be either, and they will shriek to the rafters about the impending doom of us all.
    Nihilists and Obstructionists are dead weight on any dissenting activist movement, even though they pretend to support the cause, and should be tossed to the curb immediately. A revolution for liberty requires foresight, and courage. If a person does not meet both these criteria, they will eventually bring you down with them."

    It has and always will be my intention to bolster confidence in Americans and their loyalty to the Constitution of our United States and the founding fundamental principals of Christianity which it is built upon. Watchmen have been called through out the ages to observe the affairs of men. And is the calling, for to warn and upbrade the ( true believers ) in Liberty and Freedom from oppression. We have never needed a state to rule our compassion to give ! Beast of the field always show their true nature, as with hatred and domination. As with Russian ambassadors wanting their hot tub parties, fondling American women. First hand knowledge ! Little Hitler egos always think they are supreme, envy and full of deceit. Spreading hate, so as to divide. Thinking themselves to be pure, above others. They are their worst enemy ! Minority is but to show, there is a core of patriotism and true belief in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob , the one true God. We are a hybrid Republic based on principals of Christianity, seeking after that which good is. Not a democratic socialize, if it feels good do it, reprobate form of government. All things are corrected out of measure, as will Israel be also. There is a falling away and a fullness fulfilled. Things are knit together by God, and his calling is sure, very sure as also his testimonies.
    As also my oath to core. Semper Fi !
