The Enemy Within and How to Overcome

Assuming the role of Supreme GOP Strategist, a role self-bequeathed upon Rove and Morris, Camp Mittiot (Media, GOPe and Mittiots) would get the following guidance. Capitalize on every rise your opponents is perceived as gaining. The ripple felt by Santorums Trifecta would go relatively unnoticed were the media not structuring an election and America delirious to fill the ‘Palin Void’. Ask yourself: What happened to Newt post South Carolina? And to Santorum post Trifecta? Why so? What is Camp Mittiots agenda? Who is the target of my enemy’s wrath?

We have a sitting President, albeit illegally, whose days are numbered. Only a complete GOP meltdown or horrific voter fraud will circumvent the inevitable, leaving the GOP nomination tantamount to salvaging a country on the brink of a Totalitarian Socialistic hold. The candidates are the established GOP inheritor, Governor Mitt Romney, former Speaker Newt Gingrich, Congressman Ron Paul and the ‘Palin Void’ crowd, occupied by Rick Santorum the only one of his peers left standing. Right back where we started, pre-primaries, when Bachmann filled the ‘Palin Void’ as the obvious nominee.

My strategy would clearly magnify Santorum wins. Paint Newt as, once again, out of the picture. Direct my electorate to crossover in polling and primaries in fallacious support of the ‘Palin Void’. Were this tactic to prove successful in Georgia I would then dismantle Santorum watching the shell of a candidacy crumble virtually overnight. The media would finish the job for me.

What if the strategy backfired? What if America was presented Rick Santorum as the nominee? Conventional wisdom would have Rick playing the roll of a Dole or McCain with the Sorosian machine devouring him. Ah but I now assume the role of Morris, DNC Savior! Allow Santorum the election with full knowledge he will be the GOP Jimmy Carter personified, ending that nasty element standing in the way of our Socialist Dynasty. Alas! The demise of the GOP! But wait. What about our House and Senate under GOP control. A mere two year nuisance. A Santorum presidency would guarantee a second if not permanent Obammie throne.

America is once again being played the fool by the two national parties. The path is however convoluted this trip as TEA Party involvement has given rise to a more engaged electorate. Is America really this gullible? Dole, McCain, …next? I’d love to think not. Mere days in the offing will tell us not only this answer but the fate of our grandchildrens future. In promoting your candidate what are you turning a blind eye to?

Newt can no longer address those of who “get it”. We are energized and had best disseminate the message. America is clearly at a crossroads. One man will boldly delivery our message and fundamentally change Washington for our good. The man is Newton Leroy Gingrich.

Reflections On The Battlefield

Let us begin by defining who we are in terms of convictions and goals; the enemy in terms of how they are are manifest. We are a contemplative, geographically disparate coalition of like minded individuals seeking restoration of our Country by attending the Constitution, a people prepared to sacrifice, using, but not limiting ourselves, to the peaceful ballot box, taking as literal the words and wisdom of Jefferson, Adams and Madison. We are humble servants, a conduit for a future generations lifeblood; an arrogant yet factually accurate statement. We are versed in the documents giving birth to our Constitution, namely the Federalist Papers, vehemently dispelling the notion of an over reaching Federal government, taxation, regulations and denial of individual liberties. We, indeed, hold certain truths to be self evident, defending our borders against enemies, foreign and domestic, honoring sacrifices made by our fathers, mothers, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters in uniform.

A macro examination yields our core beliefs in a Father, Son and Holy Ghost. The providential creation of this land we love and the documents that guide us give witness to this. We are a Judaeo Christian nation, tolerant of other religions lest we be found more offending than the tyranny from which we evolved.

At micro examination we find threads of interwoven strengths. Were this not so we would deteriorate against the slightest prevailing wind. Americans are self supporting, generous, fearless; the light of this world. Why then is our argument fused with extreme vitriol. See the writings of Thomas Sowell (a) defining the Progressives / Liberals – beginning with Teddy Roosevelt, through the sixties movement, to the cultic zealots of Green worshipers. Each despot furthering the agenda, never allowing a step backwards. Plunder the Socialist war chest to find the omnipotent sacrifice of the blood of millions of babies.

Victory requires defining the enemy in terms of tactics and persona. Begin a list with Schumer, Frank, Dodd, Peolsi, Reid, Obama, Clinton, Ginsberg, depraved Cloward – Pivin – Alynski vermin propped up by Soros and Media moguls, evoking disgust at the core of American Patriots. Is there doubt Hollywood is our Babylon? Removing the vile filth pumped into our homes via cable and satellite would yield staggering results. Simply quit feeding the beast!

If we are agreed in discerning us from them and indeed recognize their strategies we are ahead of the game, right? Think again. Our political system has diverged so extreme from the intended course as to be rendered virtually unrecognizable. Refer to articles by Publius Hulldah at WordPress. (b) There are initial battles, primaries, that must be waged and won prior to engaging in our Armageddon. It is you, the warrior, who must be properly fitted with armaments of war.

I leave you with quotes of Thomas Paine: “If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace” and “Lead, follow or get out of the way.”

This will take us to the conclusion of the matter; The Enemy Within and How to Overcome.

The InSantorum Illusion

Apart from not having the first delegate commitment, exactly what have “victories” in Iowa, Missouri, Colorado and Minnesota acknowledged?

First, that participants in caucuses are underwhelmed to voice their solidarity with their higher ground constituents. This “group think” forum is void, by necessity, of critical thought. This is not to say that the caucus forum is the antithesis of the primary process. It is always much easier when espousing your “heartfelt commitment” to an issue to take the high road when exposed to the crowd in a non-binding farcical display. These same “voters” will doubtlessly “rethink” that stance when confronted with the isolation of a voting booth. It’s easy to sound righteous in a public forum. Even easier when that cry is meaningless. It’s an entirely different matter when the fate of one’s country hangs in the balance. (a)

Secondly, that voters turn out when a perceived mandate is on the table. Given the fact that our very founding principles and constitution are under a vehement, persistent, overt and covert onslaught one would think that voter turnout would be in record numbers. Well we are seeing record numbers but for low turn out. It is the nature of these non-binding caucuses. There in no mandate for voter participation. Were there overwhelming support for these forums America would benefit. There is not.(b)

Thirdly, that voters identifying themselves with the GOP are disproportionately dissatisfied with the former Governor of Massachusetts, the GOPe anointed one. These same voters have taken the bait of the legacy media, the GOPe and the Romney campaign. They are all too easily swayed.

So what have these non-binding “elections” shown us? Look no further than answering what good the current occupant at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue has done America, or what constructive legislation has come form the 112th Senate. Zero, nada, zilch. The exact numerical probability as the prospects for the subject candidates nomination.

A Delegate Situation

I often say, ‘If it can’t be explained with math or music it’s inexplicable. In the realm of politics, today’s politics, it’s assumed you “stroke the masses” in order to achieve the desired outcome. Folly! It’s the math. In football the fans in the bleachers are bent on the “score, score, score more…” mindset. Folly! It’s the math. In football you cannot win if you do not score. I will beat you because my focus is defensive, I will not allow you to score. Look no further than the 2012 BCS National Championship Game for this harsh reality. In this GOP primary run up to the Presidential election I will not allow you 1144 delegates. I will focus my energies on districts and delegates. For Speaker Gingrich it seems the “winner take all states” are left-leaning and prime for the Mittiot’s taking. Why would I “waste” my valuable resources and energies only to come away empty handed? No, someone much more in touch with the entire convoluted conundrum we call primaries can answer this one. They can look at the micro-campaign to glean where the more probable delegates will come from… and get them!

Newt 2012 need only to get to the convention within striking distance of the magic 1144. There his true prowess comes into play, garnering support eye to eye; mano y mano. The end game will not be who can Newt bring over. It will be who is willing to stay aboard a sinking ship? The same “delegate strategy” could be said for the Romney campaign. The glaring difficulty with that scenario is the deflating, humiliating beating the Romney campaign will suffer after having proclaimed the Mittiot’s coronation for the previous eight months. Going into the primaries of June 5th expect the delegate count to be in the neighborhood of the Mittiot’s 690 to Newt’s 640. We will have had two weeks to digest the reality of that figure. Granted Camp Romney will ride into Tampa fresh off the California, New Jersey and Utah wins. And rest assured the legacy media will rail on the results from June 5th, probably something in the way of a Mittiot thrashing of Newt, 240 to 16 delegates, as if the final nail has, at last, been driven into the Newt 2012 coffin. This reliance on perpetuating a fallacy, a proven Alynski tactic, once again fails them. The mere presence of Newton Leroy Gingrich in full armament at the Tampa convention is nightmare personified for the GOP establishment (GOPe). Delegates will flee Romney if only to be seen as joining a winner. That is if the Mittiot does not self destruct in the interim. Simply stand between the Mittiot and the “goal line”.

The Poor, The Farmer and the Soldier

The Poor, The Farmer and The Soldier
(A Tale of Fifteen Follies)

If you’ve ever had the occasion to watch “WKRP In Cincinnati” perhaps you remember the episode where Gordon “Venus Flytrap” Sims, the “supercool black disc jockey” offered to educate a young black male who seemed hell-bent on wasting away into the drug, gang and hate world of black youth. Venus challenge was for the young man to spend one evening allowing Venus to explain the “Atom” to him. If the concept was beyond him then he was “free” to explore the world of doom he seemed so destined to join. Have a look at that show. It is nothing short of amazing. Venus (Tim Reid) explains the structure of the atom in two minutes. It is episode number 58 of season three, “Venus and the Man”. The Les Nessman critique of the black man in this episode is mind boggling. “Scratch an Allman Brother and you have black”. Credit should be given to the brilliant writer of this episode, Hugh Wilson.

I use this analogy to point out how simple it is to understand, for example, our Executive Branch with its cabinet level departments. The majority of  people you come in contact with not only could not name the cabinet level departments but are mostly unaware of both their existence and functions. Of course those reading this treatise have a vested interest in a more thorough appreciation for these posts.  Let’s look at America through the eyes of The Farmer, The Poor and The Soldier.

You can break our executive branch down into three basic functions; The Poor People, The Industrious Farmers and the Vigilant Soldiers. The enslavement the “poor and down-trodden” with governmental “handout” programs incubated from FDR has become a Democratic phenomenon. This cycle has been perpetuated and indeed honed to an art by liberal socialists to the point where a vast number of Americans cannot imagine life without government “help”. These are the “Poor People” and indeed include the overwhelming majority of Americans. There has been much made here lately of the “1% versus the 99%”; class warfare. I am of the opinion that defining “wealth” is simply a matter of asking yourself, “Can I support myself and family at our current status if my current income disappeared”? If you could march right along, YOU ARE WEALTHY! If not then you are in the ranks of “the rest of us”. You and I must earn a living, provide for our families and hope to achieve a modicum of “comfort”. To some of us that “comfort” is simply keeping the utilities on, food on the table and a tithe. For others it fortunately reaches further. My point is while we live in the greatest country known to mankind we must fight daily to maintain our status. No one said it was going to be easy, there is no free lunch and it’s what you make of it. Some have inherited their “comfort”. Others have been blessed with gifts and talents. But the fact is the majority of us need a “chance” to apply our meagerness in assisting our fellow man through what gifts, talents and skills we have acquired.  We are:
“The Poor”
With regard to our Executive Branch we, “The Poor”, are provided for, look after, nurtured by the departments of Welfare, Schools, Jobs, Houses and Comfort. That is to say we poor people must be “taken care of” in order to go to school, educating ourselves for jobs so we can afford a house with which to raise our families in “comfort”. Here we have the oft abused Democrat Platform, the vicious cycle. These are, of course, the Departments of Health and Human Services, Labor, Housing and Urban Development, and Energy. So why not simply roll these up into “The Department of the Poor”? But where do the services, jobs, houses and comfort come from? Certainly our present Socialist / Marxist regime would have you believe that only government can supply these needs. But you and I and indeed most of thinking America know better. We have lived the American Dream. We have witnessed greatness. We know our great history. These basic necessities emanate from:
“The Farmer”
The Farmer can be viewed as those industrious souls, those with the entrepreneurial drive to risk “comfort” in search of fortune, fame and prosperity. These are akin to Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Eli Whitney, Samuel Colt, Bell and others. Or perhaps you prefer equating these to the likes of Gates and Jobs. However, it is viewed these individuals provide a means for we “Poor” to rise above our meager state. We return to our analogy. We are blessed, bountifully, in this great country with the natural resources with which to thrive. The Land! Were it not for the land in which we live, notwithstanding our precious and providential Constitution, our plight would be likened to those of say, Afghanistan. But we are blessed! The land affords the “Farmer” the “gift” of farmland or fertile soil. This can be viewed as literal farmland but a more appropriate view would be the “fertile soil of industry”. For the farmer to succeed he must rely on his neighbors, the other states of the union. In order for this to perpetuate he needs modes of transportation; highways, railways and airways. This allows for the Farmer to do business, make a profit and share his spoils with the “Poor”.  To prevent unscrupulous dealings or theft we need the Sheriff. Here we have “The Land, The Farmer, The Highway, The Business, The Money and The Law. These are, again, provided for, looked after, nurtured by the departments of The Interior, Agriculture, Transportation, Commerce, Treasury and Justice. Oh my! Can we again eliminate five departments, effectively rolling them into one; “The Department of the Farm”! Now all this would be just rosy if we did not have to concern ourselves with foreign powers that would choose to relieve us of our prosperity. Sworn enemies such as the Islamic world. Enter:
“The Soldier”
We now find ourselves with a dilemma. Each of us must be willing to part with comfort, prosperity, luxury, fortune or fame. Evil must be confronted wherever it exists. To ignore this historically perpetuated demon is to write your own epitaph. This not to say that we as a free people should “meddle” in the sovereign affairs of other countries. I will not here go into the necessities for “providing a common defense” and caring for our Veterans, only acknowledge the paramount importance of it. This is what I will refer to as my “WTF” Department.; War, Terrorist and Foreigners as seen in the Departments of Defense, Veterans Affairs, Homeland Security and State. Uh oh! Here I go again! Roll these four departments into one; “WTF” or “The Department of the Soldier”
Synopsis
It is to be understood that the foregoing is a rather simplistic look at our Executive Branch but then we tend to complicate the mundane. This is precisely why an individual such as Herman Cain can rise from relative obscurity to the highest office in this great land. While I am not advocating Mr. Cain’s nomination I am pointing out the “simplicity” of the Executive Branch. Surely if Barrack Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, can sit in that office 1826 days, abetted by a complicit Congress, with a willful intent to destroy America as we know it, someone like Herman Cain with a Constitutionally driven Congress to aid him or her could, at the very least, begin the restoration of this great country. In regards to the branches of the Federal Government an obvious overhaul is in order. If you will allow me the three Departments as outlined above, that is the Poor, the Farmer and the Soldier, what we need is for the Federal Government to:
Get out of the way of the “Poor” people! Eliminate all five departments at this Federal level. But oh my! What will “the poor people” do? I venture to say… succeed and that at a high level. Better schools, better jobs, better houses and yes a more “comfortable” lifestyle.
Unshackle the Farmer! Get rid of the taxation and regulatory burdens that serve only to restrict job growth or eliminate jobs all together. But oh my! The wealthy elitist will wantonly destroy the planet in the process! Get over it people. The rich you will always have and man will not destroy this earth. Stop worshipping at the Altar of the Great Green Baal.  Yes man can and does pollute, endanger, and trash his world and must be encouraged to do otherwise. Rational thinking people, Southern Appalachians and indigenous tribes such as the Tsalagi (Cherokee) have long held to these principles of recycling, rationing and reverence for the land and water. We do not require environmental issues forced down our throat. But we can certainly handle these “issues” at the state level.
Set about doing the business of the Federal Government! Act in strict accordance with the enumerated powers granted within our Constitution. That was a period. PERIOD . PER EI OD
Rant
Fifteen Departments, Four Trillion Dollars Per Year, Four Million Employees. Seven of these departments created in the last 58 years. And all of these facts and figures escalating. For what? Why? We don’t have simply jobs going overseas, we have industries gone! We must demand fiscal responsibility of our elected officials. No more bailouts, buyouts, earmarks, foreign aid, or United Nations. Defund the likes of National Public Radio, Planned Parenthood, The National Endowment for the Arts. One of the problems with the Federal Government is the “Elephants Nose in the Tent Syndrome”. Once a department, regulation, statute or tax is implemented, forget it! It’s ours for life! Yes, the Post Office Department went away. Go figure. These people are directly in the “Line of Succession” for the Presidency! That’s real folks! Realizing that in the event of the death of the chief executives, the Speaker and Senate pro tempore Congress would move swiftly (how about that for an oxymoron) to remove that cabinet member and  assume the office of the President. But how frightening is a Janet Napolitano Presidency? She’s in line folks.
