The Sixties Radical on National Security

It’s another Monday morning coming down. It’s the same old BS all over again. This seems to never change. The Prez is hell bent on destroying our Military and intelligence gathering system.

Oops, I am sorry we have another leak. This is time one of top dogs in Pakistan has been ratted out.

This is an endless parade of our friends being hung out to dry by the evil Prez and minions.

Fox news ran this story. The headline goes like this- Did An Angry Pakistan Out Top US Spy.

This is pure BS.

The state run lame stream media is running with the story that Pakistan did it.

I am willing to bet dollars to holes in a donut that the Prez gave orders to rat this guy out.

The evil Prez, his minions, lap dog media, the Left, and the Dems are shifting the blame from us to Pakistan.

If it smells like a duck, walks like a duck, guess what? It’s a duck.

For the first time in our history we have a President who hates this country.

This is a hard pill to swallow.

This is true.

Just look at the facts.

Top Six Reasons We Got Osama bin Laden

Taking down Osama bin Laden was an achievement resulting from a culmination of a decade of national security policy. Soft power and diplomacy helped along the way, but it was hard power and military might that made it possible. President George W. Bush put the correct policies in place, including the PATRIOT Act, Gitmo and increased intelligence gathering. President Barack Obama was wise to continue executing many of the same strategies. Here are the main reasons we were able to take him out.

#1. We Invaded Afghanistan. Anyone who is a hunter knows you have to flush game out before you bag it. It often works the same way with terrorists. The Taliban refused to give up bin Laden because the two groups were joined at the hip and saw Afghanistan as just the first step in building bin Laden’s worldwide terrorist empire—pushing him out was job #1.

#2. We Set Up Gitmo. When the full story of the long war against terrorism is told, we will learn that detaining and interrogating enemy combatants was a critical tool in winning the war. Indeed, we have found that when we released Gitmo detainees, many of them went back to the battlefield. There are already reports that detainees through lawful interrogations provided key intelligence cues that helped tracked down bin Laden. CIA Director Leon Panetta told NBC News yesterday that “enhanced interrogation techniques” were used to extract information that led to the mission’s success.

#3. We Increased Intelligence Gathering. We had a number of intelligence operations running inside of Pakistan with the help of the government. We used the data collected there, in Afghanistan, at Gitmo and at other facilities around the globe to diligently and patiently connect the dots. This high quality analysis is not possible without modern technology and military equipment and dedicated personnel.

#4. We Didn’t Quit Afghanistan. Afghanistan provided a base to keep bin Laden at bay. Drone strikes limited the enemy’s freedom of movement. The base in Afghanistan helped collect intelligence about the enemy and in the end served as the base to launch SEAL Team Six to take the enemy out. Our mission in Afghanistan now remains to help build a nation that can govern and protect itself, so that it can act as a seawall to keep the Taliban and their al-Qaeda sponsors from going back and forth across the border. This is a job worth doing and one that can be done. In fact, recent polls show that in the wake of taking out bin Laden, there has been an upswing of Americans who are now convinced that the war in Afghanistan can be won. They are right.

#5. We Protected the Homeland. At least 38 terrorist plots have been foiled since 9/11. Our ability to protect the homeland while we hunted bin Laden was an important part of keeping him cornered until he could be hunted down.

#6. We Provided for the Common Defense. Protecting America can’t be done with special operations alone or just by lobbing drones and cruise missiles at the enemy. (That was the Clinton strategy, which failed.)  SEAL Team Six may have gotten bin Laden, but it was because conventional forces chased him out of Afghanistan, we rounded up prisoners and sent them to Gitmo to be interrogated, and we established a presence in Afghanistan to hold bin Laden at bay and then launch operations against him. A strong military and special operations strategy go hand in hand. The troops who have been fighting this battle since 2001 are brave warriors who deserve the best equipment and tools to get the job done.

President Obama should be praised for his command this weekend, as should the military and civilian leaders of the past decade who gave him the necessary security apparatus to make this an easy decision. Obama should not use this one victory to reverse course, deplete our military readiness, abandon the war in Afghanistan and weaken our national security. We should remain vigilant in the ongoing war against terrorism.

The Sixties Radical on The Culture War

The more things change the more they stay the same. It is the demonizing of the Ryan’s budget, it’s the attack of the left on marriage and our very morals, the Prez and his destruction of the country; I mean this list goes on ad nasium.

The left wants to take this country into the dark ages.

The war is waged to see who will win.

It is a war on our very survival as a nation.

We don’t have time to debate the margins.

John Boehner you better be ready to wage war against the left.

We have to defeat their ideas.

The enemy from within will stop at nothing to get what they want.

We can’t be timid souls, sit back, and compromise with the Prez, the left, and the Dems.

If we do it will be all over.

Yet, the trend has been established to do this.

It started with the 385 million dollars in cuts in the first battle over the budget.

Round one to the Left and the Prez.

The next battle will be over the debt ceiling being raised.

John Boehner and his men of honour are ready to cave on this issue.

The Republican leadership tells us that they will fight for Raul Ryan’s budget.

Not in this lifetime.

Champions for Marriage and the Rule of Law

Speaker of the House John Boehner’s announcement that former Solicitor General Paul Clement will lead the defense of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in federal court is a victory for the rule of law—and for an irreplaceable institution of civil society. That victory was confirmed this week as Clement resigned from the King & Spalding law firm because of its decision to abandon  DOMA after a campaign of intimidation by a gay activist group. Clement, who puts the interests of his client above his own, will continue to defend marriage as he joins Bancroft PLLC.

Ever since February 23, when Attorney General Eric Holder announced that he and President Obama had concluded that DOMA was unconstitutional, litigation over the 1996 law had been held in abeyance pending the decision to name Clement. The presence of Clement ends all doubt as to whether marriage as the union of a man and woman will get the vigorous defense it deserves in federal appeals court and, if necessary, the U.S. Supreme Court.

Acting quickly, Clement filed his first motion, an unopposed request to represent the House of Representatives as an intervenor in the case. The motion notes that the history of House participation in litigation on constitutional issues has generally involved merely filing amicus curiae briefs. Given the Obama Administration’s refusal to defend the constitutionality of DOMA’s Section 3—which reserves words such as spouse in federal law for relationships between a man and a woman—Clement’s motion seeks full intervenor status for the House to act as a party in the stead of the Justice Department. At the same time, the motion makes clear that the Justice Department retains the responsibility to defend other challenges to DOMA, including its provision protecting the states from being forced to recognize each other’s determinations regarding same-sex marriage.

Boehner and his colleagues on the Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group, Eric Cantor (R–VA) and Kevin McCarthy (R–CA), have taken the responsible approach to defend a wise and necessary law that the previous Congress, led by then-Speaker Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D–NV), made no move to disturb.  The Human Rights Campaign to damage the intervention is a travesty.

Pictures of a Budgetary Disaster

Another budget battle looms on the horizon as Congress returns from recess next week to continue work on the nation’s finances and debates whether to raise the debt limit, now at $14.3 trillion. In the last year, no single issues has captured the attention of Americans more. And for good reason. Spending and debt are skyrocketing, causing many to question what kind of course we are on. Hyper-drive spending is what last year’s elections were really all about.

To understand what that all really means — and why deep spending cuts and fiscal reforms are paramount — Americans must understand how bad the nation’s fiscal situation has gotten. Just in time for the debt limit debate, The Heritage Foundation has launched a special preview edition of its 2011 Budget Chart Book which paints a clear picture of how much the federal government is spending, how deep it’s in debt, how massive entitlement programs are, and what we pay in taxes.

Want to dive into the Budget Chart Book? Here’s a great place to start. Just this week, The Washington Post reported that all across Western Europe, countries are starting to tighten their belt and cut back on costly social welfare programs because they simply can’t afford them anymore. Countries like Greece and Portugal have suffered or are anticipating financial crises as a result of mounting debt. As our chart shows in dramatic detail, U.S. debt is, unfortunately, on track to fuel that kind of economic crisis.

Wall Street is taking notice of the problem. Last week, Standard & Poor’s lowered its outlook on the U.S. credit rating, warning that America needs to get its spending problems under control or else it’s in serious trouble. The 2011 Budget Chart Book shows just how bad that spending has gotten. See for yourself how federal spending has increased by 162 percent since 1965. Think we can fix this by just getting rid of foreign aid? See where our dollars are spent. Wonder how much we’re spending on entitlements? Check out the giant chunk Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security take out of the budget.

There are plenty of other charts, too, that fill in the blanks on how bad the budgetary picture really is. If you’ve got the post-Tax Day blues, our charts might not make you feel better, but they’ll arm you with valuable information. You can see how the total tax burden is rising to the highest level in history and visualize how the top 10 percent of income earners paid 70 percent of all federal income taxes (while 49 percent of U.S. households paid no income tax at all).

Unfortunately, these pictures aren’t pretty, but neither is the U.S. budget crisis. Some, though, just don’t get it and are insisting on borrowing more money without enacting much-needed reforms to get the government on a fiscally sustainable path. Yesterday, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney warned, “It would be terrible folly to play games with [the debt ceiling],” and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner resorted to inflated hyperbole to warn of what’s at stake:

I mean, the idea that the United States would take the risks — people would start to believe we won’t pay our bills — is a ridiculous proposition, irresponsible, completely unacceptable risk for us to take.
Here’s an unacceptable risk: Spending keeps going up along with the national debt, and we are spiraling into an economic crisis. Yet President Barack Obama is calling for an increase in the $14.3 trillion debt limit without one single meaningful spending reform. That’s why it’s crucial to understand the facts and put vital reforms like those found in Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) budget resolution, passed recently by the House, into context. The Heritage Foundation’s 2011 Budget Chart Book will arm you with the facts you need to make sense of any discussion of the nation’s spending, taxes and debt.

Editor’s Note: Stay tuned for an updated, final version of the 2011 Budget Chart Book in mid-June. A print version of the 2011 Budget Chart Book is also available.

The Sixties Radical on the gunning down of a US Congresswoman

The more things change the more they stay the same. When I first heard the news of the crazy shooting rampage that happened in Tucson, Arizona I thought here we go again. I saw the name of the Democrat Representative that was shot and six people that were gunned down in cold blood I knew the Liberal State Run media would blame the Tea Parties, Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Fox News, and all of us conservatives for this total insanity.

I was right.

The first thing that comes out of liberal’s mouths is not to condemn the killer but blame talk radio and all conservatives.

This is nuts.

The clown who gunned down these innocent folks first is crazier than a loon. Second this man was acting alone. Third his best buds said that this cold blooded killer never listened to talk radio or for that fact read the newspaper or listened to the state run media or Fox News.

Yet, the Libs, the Prez, the State Run Media, Congress and everyone else want to lay the blame on people who had nothing to do with this insanity.

Did Rush Limbaugh pull the trigger?

Did Sarah Palin load the gun and kill innocent people?

NO.

Jared Loughner is a nut case pure and simple.

Lock his butt up.

He should have been put away a long time ago yet he wasn’t because we can’t put away people who have a history of mental illness.

It is better for them to roam the streets and hurt people.

This is called compassion.

NOT.

The Sheriff who made the arrest is providing the defense with all kinds of ammunition.

The Sheriff needs to keep his yap shut.

His statements will prejudice the case and this might get the case thrown out of court.

Not good garoto.

The big cry is why can’t we get along.

Let’s not fight and argue.

Has anyone read the history of this country?

Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton had their little disagreement.

What happened?

Burr and Hamilton had a little duel.

Burr killed Hamilton.

The USA has a violent past.

Do you think our founding fathers kissed each other on the cheek and said, “Hey, man, I love you.”

Not in this lifetime.

George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and the rest had in your face-screaming matches.

I am not advocating violence all I am saying is that we need to know our history.

If that doesn’t  work try the Civil War.

The USA was almost destroyed by this little diddy.

Stop blaming conservatives for all our problems.

Try blaming the people who cause them.
