Better to Die By The Sword Than To Live As Coward Like You Ron Paul

Former congressman and libertarian icon Ron Paul tweeted a startling reaction to the death of SEAL sniper Chris Kyle on Monday:

Chris Kyle’s death seems to confirm that “he who lives by the sword dies by the sword.” Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn’t make sense

What doesn’t make sense is you sticking your nose in something that you know absolutely nothing about. One of the treatments for PTSD involves:

  • Trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy. Cognitive-behavioral therapy for PTSD and trauma involves carefully and gradually “exposing” yourself to thoughts, feelings, and situations that remind you of the trauma. Therapy also involves identifying upsetting thoughts about the traumatic event–particularly thoughts that are distorted and irrational—and replacing them with more balanced picture.

Now I interpret that as saying being around other servicemen and firearms in a controlled environment and exposed to the stigma that triggers PTSD in an attempt to lessen it’s effects.

Even though you are a physician  and you did serve in the Texas Air National Guard, you don’t know jack about PTSD and you need to STFU! I hope the next time you feel the need to dishonor a hero and a highly decorated veteran, that he or one brothers in arms introduces your head to your rectal cavity. 

Kyle and a friend were both killed by a veteran struggling with PTSD while working with him at a gun range on Saturday.

The former Marine, Eddie Ray Routh, turned his weapon on the other two men and shot them at close range, according to news accounts.

Kyle was the author of the best-selling “American Sniper,” which detailed his time as a record-holding SEAL sniper.

Paul has a long history of being opposed to American military intervention abroad.

DHS Says Bring A Knife To A Gunfight

New Homeland Security Video Urges Americans to Resist Shooters…With Scissors


Jan. 31, 2013 9:48am

If Americans were worried that those pushing gun control in Washington, and in the Obama administration, have unrealistic expectations about what is necessary for self defense, then a recently released video by the Department of Homeland Security seems unlikely to placate them.

The video, titled “Options for Consideration,” and released January 25th of this year, details what are meant to be acceptable responses to “active shooter situations” of the type seen at Fort Hood, Virginia Tech, and at the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Curiously, the video omits mention of the Aurora shooting, though it was filmed before Sandy Hook.

DHS’s recommended responses to such shootings, demonstrated in a generic office setting, include the obvious instructions to try to either evacuate the area, or hide someplace the shooter won’t think to look, while also warning innocent bystanders in such situations that it is necessary to follow the instructions of police officers and other law enforcement personnel who appear on the scene.

This much of the video is relatively non-controversial. However, there is one particular portion that may prompt derisive chuckles from self-defense advocates. The passage occurs at roughly 1:45 in the video, during which the narrator of the video suggests, “If you are caught out in the open, and cannot conceal yourself or take cover, you might consider trying to overpower the shooter with whatever means are available.”

The image shown at this point is as follows:

This particular bit of advice has already attracted some attention. The New York Post reports the pushback:

Richard Feldman, president of the Independent Firearm Owners Association, said he has a better option for consideration than a pair of scissors when confronting an armed mass murderer — a legal firearm.

“That’s why I prefer a gun, and I usually do carry a gun when it is lawful to do so,” said Feldman. “Clearly, you use whatever you can” to fight for your life, he said.

So if scissors are all you’ve got, grab them by all means.

The video is part of the Obama administration’s ongoing campaign to reduce firearm violence in the wake of the horrific mass murder last month of 20 children and six teachers in Newtown, Conn., said a Homeland Security official.

Given that the video was apparently released to coincide with Obama administration proposals on gun control, the fact that it makes mention of self-defense at all is surprising. However, suggesting that self-defense with scissors and other improvised weapons might be a valid option while neglecting to mention the idea of carrying a firearm for preparedness arguably heightens the omission of the latter.

Watch the video for yourself, below:

What an absurd bunch of crap brought to you by Janet Napolitano and the rest of the idiots at the DHS.

A Week Vs a Matter of Hours

A Week Later, Obama Calls to Congratulate Netanyahu on Election Win (Guess How Long It Took to Call After Egypt’s Morsi Won)

Jan. 29, 2013 7:17am

A Week Late, Obama Calls to Congratulate Netanyahu on Election Win (Guess How Long it Took to Call After Egypts Morsi Won?)

It took nearly a full week, but President Barack Obama on Monday called Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to congratulate the Israeli leader on his election win last Tuesday.

This is the readout of the phone call from the White House:

President Obama spoke today by telephone with Prime Minister Netanyahu to congratulate him on his party’s success in winning a plurality of Knesset seats in Israel’s recent election.  The President indicated that the United States looks forward to working with the next government.  He also reiterated his commitment to the deep and enduring bonds between the United States and Israel, and pledged to work closely with Israel on our shared agenda for peace and security in the Middle East.

Still, despite his tardiness, Obama in fact was the only world leader to have congratulated Netanyahu thus far, according to the Israeli paper Haaretz.

Still, other bloggers pointed out that it took Obama only hours to phone Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi on his election win over the summer.

The frosty relations between Obama and Netanyahu have been widely reported, and there was even evidence President Obama tried to influence Israelis to vote against Netanyahu. This came in the form of an apparent leak reported by the well-connected Bloomberg columnist Jeffrey Goldberg just one week before the elections. Goldberg wrote that Obama had told “several people” privately that Netanyahu’s policies were self-defeating and causing Israel to be isolated. Goldberg claimed that Obama said repeatedly to his confidents that “Israel doesn’t know what its own best interests are.”

The poor relations characterization was emphasized further on Monday by former U.S. Ambassador to Israel Martin Indyk who told Israel’s Army Radio that the two leaders have “bad chemistry.”

The Jerusalem Post provided quotes from the interview, in which the former ambassador encouraged both leaders to try to mend their relations:

With regard to Obama’s state of mind, Indyk said that he believes, “President Obama is feeling quite frustrated because he rightly feels that he has done the right thing by Israel, but Israel is not responsive.”

Indyk suggested that once Netanyahu has formed his new government, he should “reach out to President Obama and try to turn a new page.” He added that the “relations between the United States and Israel are more important than the differences between the two leaders.” Referring to these tensions, which have been widely reported, Indyk said that the two heads of state “need to overcome them.”

At a press briefing after the phone call, White House Spokesman Jay Carney characterized the call as “warm” and said: “This country’s commitment to Israel’s security is unshakable and has been reflected in this administration’s commitment to Israel’s security.”

“It is also the case that in his first term, there is no leader with whom this president has had more conversations than Prime Minister Netanyahu,” Carney added.

Carney, you and Obama are lying SOB’s, and like all liberals, hate Israel and would not come to their defense if they were attacked. If you did care for Israel’s security he would not be giving 200 Abrams tanks and 20 F-16 fighter jets to Egypt and the radical islamic terrorist organization known as  the Muslim Brotherhood, in other words our enemies.  

We know the truth about this tyrant and we will keep shouting it from the roof tops.

Pass The Phenergan Please

No, I did not watch or listen to the inauguration of the DICK





I am one of the soon to be minority that works for a living to support a growing base of Obama voters/supporters, better known as societies freeloaders. I did listen to excerpts of his dictatorial agenda, err speech , and it was at this point that I really needed some of the strongest anti-nausea/vomiting medication available. But since there was none available, I had to choke back the bile rising in my throat.

Then I started listening to the Obama ass kissing festival from the lame stream media and I thought to myself, this is what it must have been like at the height of Hitler’s reign in Nazi Germany, with the journalists that swooned over every syllable emanating from the fuhrer’s mouth.

I fully expect that our Constitution, by the end of Obama’s 2nd term to be in tatters along with our economy, religious institutions, our military and our healthcare. By 2016 our country will be in such a state of economic ruin that I don’t believe anything or anybody will be able to turn it around.

Either pockets of civil unrest or an all out civil war is on the horizon and I fully  expect that many Americans will die in an epic struggle to take this country back from a tyrannical government, and have no doubt it will be us, the average patriotic Americans. We will be the next generation of Minute Men and Women.

What is happening in our country is the kind of script you would find in a spy or disaster novel and/or movie. The first black president elected is an habitual liar who spends trillions of dollars bailing out companies, most who go belly up and the ones that don’t, default on the loans. He changes our healthcare system into a socialist system that is doomed to failure while adding trillions more to our debt. Obama and the democrats demonize Christians, Conservatives, Caucasians and Capitalism. At the same time embracing and befriending our enemies by giving the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt 16 F-16 fighter aircraft and 200 Abrams tanks that they will undoubtably use against Israel and even us in a future conflict. He separates us along racial and economic lines, in any rational mind he is treasonous and a sociopath. This might make a great novel or movie since a happy ending could just be written in.

But this is not fantasy, it is reality. Obama’s second term will very likely mean the termination of all we hold dear….freedom, prosperity, morality and our individual rights.

Screw You Obama

You Shall Not Infringe On Our Second Amendment Rights, Obama

I have no intention of obeying any of your illegal executive orders concerning the 2nd Amendment to the United States Constitution.

You have no right to usurp the Constitution, which you have already done on several previous occasions, you are nothing more than a punk criminal that occupies the White House, do Benghazi, Fast and Furious and Crony Capitalism sound familiar to you.

You and your criminal cabal think you are above the laws that apply to the rest of us and you depend on your useful idiots in the Lame Stream Media to cover up and downplay your criminal activity.

Enough is enough! WE have to make a stand here and now, you will not take my guns, my magazines or my ammunition. You will not tell me how rounds I can load in a magazine or make other restrictions on my legal gun ownership, you don’t have that right.

For four years we have watched you chip away at our rights and freedoms, spend us into oblivion just so you can appease your voter base who are addicted to the money flowing from the government teat, rather than work and support themselves.

You have racked up enormous debt and turned us into slaves and ensured that our unborn generations will be born in servitude paying off possibly hundreds of trillion of dollars of future debt. You need to be stopped, my personal preference is impeachment by the House of Representatives and conviction by the Senate and imprisonment. I want to see you in handcuffs and a prison jumpsuit doing the perp walk to your 8X8 prison cell, nothing less will suffice.

I’m just your everyday average American, a patriot and a law-abiding citizen, but I am also the worst enemy to liberals  and if I continue to be pushed, I will fight back, and you know the best part…there are millions more in this country just like me. We are willing to engage in civil discourse, civil disobedience and if necessary civil war.

Molon Labe!

A Book Review

The Right To Bear Arms: After the Riots Begin (Volume 1)

I just got through reading this book and if you want a realistic depiction of our near future under a government that believes in taking from the producers and redistributing to the millions that have a permanent lip-lock on the government teat.

It follows a surgeon in a major city as he struggles to treat patients in a country coming apart at the seams, in a city where anarchy rules, in a hospital running short on staff and supplies but overrun with patients.

His family is first and foremost on his mind and getting them to safety is his number one priority.

His encounters with society’s scum place him in danger but he finds allies and forms alliances and scores victories.

All in all it is good read, it will make you think about preparing for society’s collapse where there is lawlessness and a government that has not learned from its own mistakes and continues to dig themselves deeper  and the country deeper into Hell.

This book will scare you if you are not prepared for the coming turmoil and will make you proud of the patriotism and sacrifices of the characters.
