Not "if", but When The "SHTF" (S Hits The Fan), how will you get your news? Will you be listening to the government-controlled TV, cable, and local media stations? For the most part, you already are! The STATIST Media already is the propaganda arm of the President. Like that will work for you! Will you depend on your cell phone, tablet, or other similar electronic device? Will you depend on the Internet? Forget those ideas. WHY?
If you've been paying any attention, you should be aware that Obama has already considered these options and has written several "Executive Directives" (euphemism for STEALING POWERS HE DOESN'T HAVE). His usurpation of powers gives him the ultimate authority in a "national emergency" like WTSHTF to control media messages, and Internet control. How convenient.
Yes, Obama learned from Hugo Chavez (recently deceased dictator of Venezuela) that you MUST control the media. HUGO nationalized all TV and all radio stations. Since Obama couldn't just "nationalize" them like Chavez did, he did it in a surreptitious way by "Executive Directives" instead. Obama will control ALL media, phones, and Internet services in cases of "national emergencies." The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will become Obama's "Civilian National Security Force" (alias the Brown Shirts). It's all there and he has been busy creating this structure during his first four years as President. Block by block, piece by piece, the structure has been built into place to deal with "Civil Unrest" that he hopes to create. Bottom up, top down, crush the insurgents and take full control. Forget the Constitution, we have Civil Unrest. History repeats America. It's all there just waiting for the SHTF.
If you think it's bad now, what do you expect if the government takes FULL CONTROL? Do you honestly believe that they will tell you what's REALLY going on? They don't now, so how could you expect any improvement?
The Bottom Line
You need an alternate source for your communication and your news. The Answer: A short wave radio. Get yourself a good battery operated short wave radio receiver. Learn how to use it. Listen to the news being reported about the USA by foreign countries. Get a different perspective other than the one you are "forced" to listen to here. This alone should open your eyes. Share this revelation with your friends and family.
While you're at it, you should consider getting a short wave radio that can transmit voice too. The catch there is that the FCC requires you to get a license in order to broadcast on Amateur radio. This requires passing FCC exams, paying fees, and then purchasing expensive radio transmitting equipment. This can be pricy and the government will know EXACTLY WHO YOU ARE AND WHERE YOU LIVE. You will be added to their national database as a qualified licensed operator. You potentially may be called upon to help the government assist during emergencies like Katrina. Some individuals (illegally) omit the licensing process and just get the radio instead. You can buy an amateur radio without a license. Most radio vendors never ask any questions. If you have the money, they will sell you the equipment. However, it IS illegal to transmit without a license.
Think about it. This IS a good alternative to staying informed and communicating.
The GOP is an acronym for the Grand Old Party. Abe Lincoln was the first elected Republican President. However, that was in the 1860's and this is now. The Republican Party has been taken-over by the Good-Old-Boy establishment. They are the Washington insiders. You know, they give us candidates like Romney and tell us that he's the only one who can beat Obama who had a dismal four year record in office. Look at the results.
Good-Old-Boys (GOBs). That's actually an accurate description. Most of them are "Old"-Boys. Karl Rove (political hack for big spender George Bush), Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and on, and on and on…. These guys are the old-school of politics. They borrow and spend like the Democrats. They have shifted their ideology from that of being Conservative to now being Progressive. They lean to where the Democratic Party was years ago. The Democratic Party has shifted radically to the LEFT and have become PROGRESSIVES/SOCIALISTS/MARXISTS. Just look at the GOBs respective records (- except Rove. He HATES the Tea Party and does not hold political office. He "strategizes"!) The GOP no longer supports Conservative values. They talk the good talk at election time, but that's just another lie to get re-elected.
We need to take-back the Republican Party and make it the Conservative party once again. A third party will only split the votes and give the Democrats/Progressives the political advantage. Recall, this is exactly what happened when Ross Perot ran as an Independent. The third party caused the vote to split and elect Bill Clinton who received less than the popular vote. When these Good-Old-Boys come up for re-election next in the primaries, we need to support Libertarian and Tea Party candidates to replace them. We can do it.
If you're tired of the same-old, same-old, you have to support these new independent/outsider candidates. We've got nothing to loose unless you like the CRAP candidates they have been delivering for the last 10-12 years that call themselves "Conservatives."
House Speaker John Boehner (R, OH) says that the "United States does not face an immediate debt crisis…" He also says that "ANY talks about including revenue to address the 16+ TRILLION dollar debt is over." Wow, that's a comfort - Huh?
No new taxes, but it's OK to keep on borrowing and spending us into bankruptcy. This is coming from the GOP LEADERSHIP IN CONGRESS!
If you haven't recognized the idea of "no immediate debt crisis" it was spoken by President Obama last week! Boehner sounds like a DEMOCRAT - not a Republican. His thinking is part of the reason why America is going broke and racking-up unsustainable debt.
America needs NEW LEADERSHIP in the Republican Party. The John McCains and the Lindsey Grahams are NOT the answer. They are from another generation and have NOT kept pace with the changing culture in America.
Join up with your local grass-roots movements. Support their local efforts to replace the Good-Old-Boys who are considered "Career Politicians." Vote-out incumbent Republicans who are that in name only. We must eradicate (not violently) the Progressives in political office because they are destroying the very fabric of American culture.
And, BUCKEYES (Ohio voters), for Pete's sake, DUMP Boehner for a Tea Party or Libertarian candidate with TRUE Conservative values.
Back in the 1930s there were no restrictions as to how many terms a person could run for re-election. As a result, FDR (Franklin D. Roosevelt) took advantage of this by running - and being elected four consecutive times. If he would have lived, he would have been President for 16 years!
After he died and Harry Truman became President, and there was a change of thought about unlimited terms in the Presidency. Congress decided that two terms would suffice. In essence, they did NOT want to repeat what Roosevelt did. So they passed the 22nd Amendment in 1947. However, it needed 2/3 of the states to ratify this change. It wasn't until February 27, 1951 when the Constitutional Amendment finally became the law of the land. It took that long, but it did pass as an amendment. Since that time, all succeeding Presidents are only allowed two terms in office.
However, one of the most important things STILL missing from a President's prerequisites is that of a background check. Think about it. We wouldn't have Barack Hussein Obama in the White House today if the Congress had to perform an in-depth look at his background, his association with known terrorists, friendships with Communists, and other radicals. If there was a mandatory background check in place, Obama would never have made the first cut for the office. In fact, if Obama had to work in any government agency he wouldn't pass ANY background check because of his past activities and acquaintances. How could we elect this man to become the most powerful man in this hemisphere without a background check? Obviously, the STATIST MEDIA (who loves Obama) didn't perform due diligence. We let them overlook it. That's our fault America.
Hey, even the government forces people to undergo mandatory background checks all the time. One current example is a background check in order to buy a firearm. The government also requires serious background checks for people to work at many government agencies, or bureaus. TOP SECRET Clearances are required in many government positions. Obama would NEVER qualify for a TOP SECRET Clearance for any of those agencies or departments.
Ironically, this is NOT a requirement to become the President. Why not? Doesn't this make sense? Shouldn't the person who will become the President and have control over the armed forces - including our nuclear arsenal, have the same background checks required as a condition of employment?
Today, they don't. This is not only STUPID, but INSANE. Look what it has given us today?
We should learn from our mistakes.
Action To Take
Let your representatives know that you want mandatory background checks performed as a prerequisite to become President of the United States. Let the respective candidates pay for it!
As a guest speaker for CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference), the Republicans got to hear why they have been loosing followers and more importantly, more support. Brent Bozell told them the TRUTH and strongly criticized some of the "big" names in the Republican Party.
Here's the context of his speech:
"So what do we conservatives believe? What is a conservative?
Throughout this wonderful conference so many very good leaders have discussed this so eloquently. Another discussion is unnecessary. Instead, let me tell you first what a conservative isn't.
Paul Ryan, you're a good man and you mean well, and good for you for your courage trying to reform Medicare and rid us of Obamacare. But your proposed budget that has the federal government spending $41 TRILLION over the next ten years, with more and more and more spending increases every single year, and assumes all the oppressive Obamacare taxes. Congressman, that's what liberal Democrats do, not us.
This is not conservatism. It is, literally, Democrat Lite.
Do you have national aspirations? Do yourself and your country a favor. Rip that budget up and come back with one that truly does reduce the size of government, which puts us on the path toward a balanced budget by reducing deficits, and one that puts us on the path of solvency by eradicating our debt. Watch what happens to both your national aspirations, and your legacy.
Haley Barbour, my friend, when you call for unity and on conservatives to "sing from the same hymnal" and then publicly trash good conservative groups like Club for Growth for supporting good conservatives, you're out of tune, and you're out of line. Do you want to be seen as a national conservative leader? Start supporting national conservative groups.
John Boehner, Eric Cantor, and Kevin McCarthy: You said all the right things to conservatives to propel the GOP back to the majority and you to the top three leadership positions in the House.
You, like virtually every single other Republican elected to Congress solemnly vowed to rid us of Obamacare, which you can do simply by refusing to fund it. Why haven't you done so?
While we're at it... when the Secretary of HHS decrees that we should be forced to pay for the murder of babies, why don't you decree that Americans are no longer going to pay for HHS? What of all the other oppressive, and in the case of Planned Parenthood, evil organizations immorally funded by our tax dollars? What of the utterly useless agencies like NPR, and PBS, and Legal Services, and the NEA and so many others you solemnly pledged to put out of our misery?
You've done nothing for over two years but give us excuses and more commitments that tomorrow, yes tomorrow, you'll honor your promises. Gentlemen, where promises are concerned, you are not what you promised to be.
Do you want to restore your reputations as conservative leaders? All you need to do is honor your promises. They were good ones. Watch what happens next. You'll be heroes."
Brent, we couldn't have said it any better! Thanks Brent for delivering a clear message to the JUGHEADS running the Party.
