Another Example of “If We Don’t Learn From History, We Are Doomed to Repeat It”

Disarmed Russian Columnist Warns Americans: ‘Never Give Up Your Guns’

Stanislav Mishin is a Russian who knows his history — particularly the history of how the Russian people were robbed of freedom once they were disarmed by Lenin & Co. after the Russian revolution in 1917. He knows how the newly born Soviet Union then acted with impunity toward defenseless citizens, carrying out “mass deportations, mass murder, [and even] mass starvation.”

This is why his message to the American people is very clear — “never give up your guns.”

Writing in Pravda over the weekend, Mishin pointed out how the world that was once enchanted with America has become less and less so as America has moved more and more toward a socialistic framework. The one thing people have continued to admire is America’s long held right to keep and bear arms, according to Mishin, yet now Obama and the Democrats are threatening to take it away as well. 

Writes Mishin: “This will probably come as a shock to most of my Western readers, but at one point Russia was one of the most heavily armed societies on earth. This was, of course, when we were free [before the Russian Revolution].”  After this, he goes through a list of abuses the Russian people have faced not only during Soviet times but under Vladimir Putin too, and here is his conclusion: “[Gun control] is about power and total power over the people.”

Speaking as one who knows firsthand how gun control eviscerates freedom, Mishin warns Americans: “Never give up your guns.” We would do well to heed his warning. 

We know where this is heading and if you don’t, you choose at your own risk to bury your head in the sand. Once they get our guns we will no longer have the means to fight back. The Constitution and the right to bear arms are our aces in the hole, we lose them and we lose, period!

White House Petition To Deport Piers Morgan Tops 80K Signatures

For those of you who don’t know who Piers Morgan is, he is an anchor for CNN(now you know why you haven’t heard of him), he is also a rabid anti-gun, half wit brit who has used his soapbox lately to disparage our gun laws.

Our Constitution and even the Bible are also under attack by this brit twit, who says that OUR Constitution needs to be amended as well as the Bible.

Our fore fathers spanked the ass of idiots like Morgan over 200 years ago and sent them back to England with their tail tucked between their legs, but Morgan if you think you can come here now and tell us how to run OUR country, you’d better think again. As far as amending the Bible, that’s something you’ll have to take up with God when you meet him(and if you keep causing trouble in this country, that might be sooner than you think).

BBC’s ‘Top Gear’ Host to America: ‘It Took Us 40 Years to Get Rid of Piers Morgan, Please Don’t Send Him Back’

 
 

Jeremy Clarkson, a British television personality who hosts the popular BBC program Top Gear, weighed in on the controversy surrounding fellow Brit CNN’s Piers Morgan. Clarkson tweeted on Monday:

 

@JeremyClarkson

Americans. It took us 40 years to get rid of Piers Morgan. Pleasse don’t send him back.

The Top Gear host also tweeted:

Americans. Was the second amendment not introduced to protect you from the tyranny of the British? Piers Morgan in other words.

I am a big fan of Top Gear and if you have never seen it you are in f0r a treat. It is informative(if you are really into cars) and can be very funny(if you appreciate British humor) even my wife loves the show and laughs out loud during it.

I have nothing against the British people as a whole, I was stationed there for seven years and I really loved the people I got to know there.

What I do have a problem with is idiots like Piers Morgan, no matter which side of the pond they are on trying to subvert our Constitution and take away our rights.

Time To Make Sure We Are The Fittest Survivors

It’s the day after Christmas and even though my wife and I don’t spend alot on gifts we usually do get each other a few small special gifts. For the past several years survival and saving money have been high on our list of priorities.

We were (as I know all the people at FOTM were) expecting a different result from the last election and a turnaround with a new government, but the criminal Obama regime with it’s voter fraud, voter intimidation and vote tampering has put us in a precarious situation that has a large percentage of the American populace preparing for the worse.

Preparing to counteract a government that has turned against the people and instead enjoying the fruits of our labor we wonder what life will be like six weeks, six months or one year from now. Knowing that if drastic measures are not taken by our government to curb spending and cut entitlements then our country could look and feel very differently in the next 1-2 years. The riots in Greece and elsewhere in Europe will not seem so foreign because they will be happening here and on a much larger scale.

I often heard people say that Obama is probably a good guy who has just made some bad decisions, to which I say BULLSH*T! Obama is a cold, calculated socialist cut from the same cloth as Lenin, Stalin and Mao and like them, he will eventually turn to violent means to push his agenda. We are talking a despot here that has no regard for the people or laws of this country, his singular focus is domination.

I don’t claim to have the answers or solutions to our problems but I don’t accept the premise of surrender, subjugation or giving in, right now I just believe we must survive and be ready for the inevitable fight that is coming our way.

The Fight Against Liberalism Continues

If nothing else the past year has shown that nothing is a sure bet, there is no level so low that the liberals can’t stoop below it and and no fight that RINO’s won’t back away from.

I don’t know what the future holds for our country but I do know that as long as freedom and liberty is ingrained on our psyche and patriot blood courses through our veins, no single man or even a government can take away what we are ready to fight for. What our founding fathers fought for and guaranteed for all future generations and what the past generations of men and women fought and died for to protect, we have an obligation to preserve.

Despite the degradation and decay of our society I hold-out hope that we will turn things around, this will not be easy and will not be without risks and I’m  beginning to understand how our forefathers must have felt during their struggles against a tyrannical monarch over two centuries ago.

Are we any less men that they were? In some ways yes,  but in most ways no, we are the same. We just want to be free, to have a government of the people, by the people, for the people and the freedom to pursue happiness and prosperity without government interference or intervention.

With this being said I just want to wish everyone  A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Success  is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that  counts.

Happy To Be Back

I  am happy to return to FOTM as a contributor, but as an American I weep for our country. A lot has happened in my absence and none of it good. I actually gave up on politics for a while after the election, choosing to throw myself into emergency preparations, gathering supplies (food, water, medical supplies and of course ammunition). Despite my efforts though I was drawn to FOTM and other Conservative websites for my daily fix of the news.

With rampant vote fraud, intimidation and tampering, Obama will get a second term, backboneless Boehner will cave in to the liberals and make a bad deal to avoid the fiscal cliff and our country is more divided along racial and economic lines probably more than at any time in our history.

Liberals have planned and coordinated this attack on our society for decades and by seeing the state of our country,it has been successful and we were caught with our pants down. I believe  we have gone over the brink and whether we can bring ourselves back over the brink is up to the how far the true Americans are willing to go to take back what is ours according to the Constitution and what our forefathers fought for.

I want to thank Dr.Eowyn and the other contributors at FOTM for welcoming me back to the blog and I will do what I can to advance conservative principles in this dangerous age.

Aerial Dogfighting 2012 Style

2012 RAYTHEON AWARD VIDEO

On a day that we remember victims of 9/11, let’s also remember the men and women who guard our skies, who are ready at a moments notice to defend  against  attack, who fly countless missions everyday. You may not see them but they are there.

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, –and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of – wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,
I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air . . .

Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or even eagle flew -
And, while with silent, lifting mind I’ve trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

Obama’s Lack of Intelligence

Obama Skipping Staggering Amount of Daily Intelligence Meetings

One of the centerpieces of the Democratic case for Barack Obama‘s reelection in Charlotte last week was the President’s record on national security – specifically, his decision to pursue the operation that eventually led to the death of Osama bin Laden.

That impressive achievement, however, may be blunted by the force of revelations by former Bush speechwriter Marc Thiessen in today’s Washington Post. Thiessen writes:

President Obama is touting his foreign policy experience on the campaign trail, but startling new statistics suggest that national security has not necessarily been the personal priority the president makes it out to be. It turns out that more than half the time, the commander in chief does not attend his daily intelligence meeting.

The Government Accountability Institute examined President Obama’s schedule from the day he took office until mid-June 2012, to see how often he attended his Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) — the meeting at which he is briefed on the most critical intelligence threats to the country. During his first 1,225 days in office, Obama attended his PDB just 536 times — or 43.8 percent of the time. During 2011 and the first half of 2012, his attendance became even less frequent — falling to just over 38 percent. By contrast, Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush almost never missed his daily intelligence meeting.

Thiessen was able to get comment from the White House’s National Security spokesman, Tommy Vietor, who told him,  “The president gets the information he needs from the intelligence community each day.”

 Vietor’s reason for believing this is apparently that despite not attending meetings, President Obama reads the briefs on National Security that he receives every day, and simply can’t find time to attend the specific meetings. Thiessen does not find this persuasive:

Yet Vietor also directed me to a Post story written this year in which Obama officials discuss the importance of the intelligence meeting and extol how brilliantly the president runs it. “Obama reads the PDB ahead of time and comes to the morning meeting with questions. Intelligence briefers are there to answer those questions, expand on a point or raise a new issue,” The Post reported. “One regular participant in the roughly 500 Oval Office sessions during Obama’s presidency said the meetings show a president consistently participating in an exploration of foreign policy and intelligence issues.”

Not so consistently, it seems.

Thiessen has been a consistent critic of the Obama administration’s approach to national security and, as such, he is likely to be dismissed by liberals as a hack trying to turn a non-issue into an issue. Their argument might be considered stronger if not for reports that the President spends extraordinary amounts of time each day engaged in what amount to trivialities. For instance, one can imagine an argument that the President ought to spend less time perfecting his skill at bowling, and more time attending these briefings.

Here we are, engaged in war in Afghanistan, Iran is developing nuclear weapons, terrorist organizations are taking over the middle east and this lazy bastard cannot even take time out from campaigning, golfing and every other of his trivial pursuits, to give a damn about our national security.

It’s painfully obvious that Obama just doesn’t care what happens to us as long as he can keep shining that seat in the oval office with his ass.

Start The Countdown

Lady Gaga: If Romney Wins, Let’s Move to New Planet

by  Breitbart News7 Sep 2012, 11:48 AM PDT

It’s usually about this time in the election cycle when a self-important star will vow to flee the country should the GOP take the White House.

For Lady Gaga, leaving the country isn’t good enough.

Is the singer mocking the tired promise of leaving the U.S. should someone’s preferred candidate lose? Or is she so sure a Mitt Romney presidency will set the globe afire that she’s looking for a pretty radical Plan B?

I volunteer to strap her to a rocket booster and blast her grotesque, talentless ass into the cosmos.

In the immortal  words of Alan Shepard:

“Lets light this candle!”
