Why Republican establishment is against Trump (not what you think)

What if…

2009 Obama and Clinton are plotting their “Arab Spring” .
Along with destabilizing Libya, Yemen and Egypt they come up with a “Syria solution”
They decide to arm the anti Assad rebels to push Assad to resign.

Clinton takes this to Capitol Hill and gets buyin from senior Republicans and Democrats..

The State Dept and CIA set up shop in Benghazi after they destabilize and KILL Qaddafi.

The US then spends BILLIONS buying up weapons including MANPADS from Libya and start shipping them to Syrian rebels through an intermediary possibly Turkey.

But Syria goes sideways. The “REBELS” thatClinton chose go rogue. They become the genesis for ISIS or ISIL.
The Embassy in Benghazi falls and our Ambassador who was managing the arms deal for Clinton is killed. The State dept / CIA annex is destroyed.

New York Senator Hillary Clinton (L) lis

Now not only are Obama and Clinton implicated, so are top Republicans such as John McCain and Lindsey Graham. Everyone who approved of arming and creating ISIS is at risk.

Enter Donald Trump.
A Republican outsider who does not play by the rules. He rides a wave of revolution in the US.
Obama, Clinton and top Republicans know that their “secret” could be exposed.

Now they are panicking. If this is exposed they all could go to jail and risk their cozy jobs and pensions. (Remember Iran Contra)

So they all turn on Donald Trump, but they are also scared as they see the people from both parties revolting. They know that Trump would investigate and expose their treasonous activities. Trump does have a chance to win the election…

All because Clinton decided she wanted to change the Middle East…

Who Hacked Clinton and the DNC? Hint “It was not the Russians”

Updated 8/9/2016

Funny how the DNC AKA the “Clintonistas” are so quick to blame Putin and “The Russians” for the hacking of the DNC, Clinton campaign but not her “private” server.

hillary-clinton-email-un-20150310

This all came after James Comey announced that if her server was hack, the best hackers would leave no trace. Yet on the DNC hack we are told that the Russians left clues all over the hack. THIS IS A DIVERSION!

The Clinton campaign led by Robbie Mook was very quick to blame the Russians of leaking to Wikileaks and Julian Assange then insinuate that Donald Trump may be involved. I guess the apple does not fall far from the Clinton tree in being dishonest.

Being a Pirate has its advantages. We hang and recognize fellow Scalawags whether they are flying the skull and crossbones or not.

When I heard everyone blaming the Russians I knew it was a red herring. It was too obvious. Clinton just needed a scapegoat that was plausible to create a new enemy and link to Trump.

When I heard that the DNC hacks were practically signed by the Russians the hair on the back of me neck stood up.

Now I know a lot of people who hang in dark Pirate bars. Patriots who were formally employed by our government and were trained to use technology as part of their “special” training. Many of these Patriots have been disgusted with not only the purge of very good men in our military leadership by Obama, but how Clinton has been dishonest, let Americans die in Benghazi, supported our enemies and allowed the rise of ISIS and the disaster of her “Arab Spring”.

hack

It is my guess that there are multiple hackers supplying wikileaks. (Turns out 1 was a murdered DNC staffer) These hacker could be retired U.S. Military and / or U.S. Intelligence.
They are proud patriots who want to save America. They know that if Clinton wins the White House that there is a good chance our nation will cease to exist as we know it. Clinton will open our borders, take away our 2nd amendment rights and start new wars to sacrifice the lives of our men and women in uniform.
They know that the system is rigged and without exposing the true criminality of Clinton and her campaign.

I watched Clinton today on Fox News. She denied that Comey confirmed that she commuted crimes, that she sent and received classified information. That she lied to the American people.
She said “That is not what I heard.”
Well this pirate may be hard of hearing, but I heard the questions Trey Gowdy asked Comey under oath and I heard his answers. He confirmed that she was dishonest and DID commit crimes but that he knew that the Obama justice department would never prosecute.

So I hope to see what comes next. I consider it sauce for the goose as Clinton was so loose in protecting Americas secrets it is only fair that HER secrets are exposed.

AMERICA cannot afford to have Hillary Clinton as our President. It would spell doom for America and for all of our freedoms!

What America wants in a President

Donald Trump very well may be the next President of the United States.
trump12

A perfect storm has gathered to make this happen.
It was inevitable.

I have a theory.

Ever since Bill Clinton came into the White House with the rise of the information age
the political spectrum has become much more extreme. With the rise of the internet websites and media companies like drudgereport.com, Breitbart and Fox news allowed the conservative message (extreme right wing) to grow and be heard without censorship by the mainstream media.

Because of this companies like MSNBC  and the New York Times among others moved farther to the liberal side preaching to the extreme left. The democrats even disguised companies like media matters to preach their liberal views.

Our politics became polarized,  you were either labeled a crazy right wing conservative or an ultra liberal. Families started to fight and the liberals demonized all thing conservative convinced that they were the mainstream.
Being a conservative I was called crazy by my liberal family in San Francisco. I in turned left town to a much more conservative place (Arizona).

But the more I supported the GOP, the more I learned that they did not care about MY views. The candidates I supported lied to me. They made promises yet caved when it came time for execution. To them I was just a source of income. This became clear when I met John McCain. I had written him letters yet never got a real response from him. I expressed my view on policies that were important to me like Immigration, Veterans issues, Taxes and Government Waste. Yet when I met him in person all he would mutter was “elections have consequences, elections have consequences”. I realized that my votes for him and the GOP had been wasted. I leaned more to the tea party whose message closer matched my views. (I am not going to vote for McCain any longer)

As time went on I became more of a Libertarian. I realized that I was not an ultra conservative, yet NOT a liberal. My views fell somewhere in between. I want smaller government, but I also want more personal freedom. I am pro life, but I agree that the law is settled and who am I to tell a woman what she can and cannot do. If someone wants to smoke weed go for it no harm, no foul. Just do note toke and drive.

I am pro military (My son is an active duty Marine). However I do not think we need to be the worlds policeman. BUT if genocide is going on we do have a responsibility to help stop it.
I also think we need to help the poor and create a welfare safety net, BUT it must be tied to job training for those who are able and not encourage lazy behavior.

But I realized I was not being represented. It appeared that I needed to choose far right or far left. I got angry and frustrated.

I felt that we needed someone in the middle, not a Liberal Democrat or a Conservative Republican.

Then here came the current election cycle and Donald Trump.
I realize that Donald Trump is not perfect. But he is the ANTI Politician option.
I love the fact that he does not cave into special interests as he does not take their money.
But he tells it like it is and is expressing the frustration of much of America.

He is not a total conservative, yet not a liberal but that is O.K.

The voters are tired of the status quo. Tired of being told what to do by a lying establishment who does not represent them.

I hope Trump is elected and disrupts or destroys the Republican party as we know it. Create a party more in tune with the people.

I think Trump will build a Mexico wall. I think he will stop the flow of illegal aliens from Mexico, South America AND the Middle East. I think he will support the military and also restructure the US Government to eliminate waste. I trust he will also bring in experts to fill positions in his administration.  I also think he will restore the United States economy again to position it as the greatest place to do business.
High hopes I know.

But I am sure of a few things.

If the GOP ignores the voters to put in their own puppet (Romney of Rubio) they will see a revolt like no other and will be made irrelevant.

If we head into socialism or are continuously ignored or change does not happen there will be a revolution and breakdown of society.

So if AMERICA elects Trump as President, I hope he is a positive agent of change and helps getting America back on track, it may be a good thing.

 

Ahoy

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Republican Establishment. BACK OFF or prepare to be boarded!

“It is, Sir, the people’s government, made for the people, made by the people, and answerable to the people. The people of the United States have declared that this Constitution shall be the supreme law.”
      
Daniel Webster (1782-1852)

Daniel-Webster-8x6

You do not know who I am.
You do not appear to care.

You want my money but you have taken me for granted for years.

For years I have backed your candidates. The ones who best expressed opinions that matched my own.
For a while you had me fooled. I trusted you. My mistake.
You send me surveys that you never read. I send you my opinion and you never respond.

Then you send me requests for money, always requests for money.
Guess what, I do not have any more money for you. My wages have decreased not prospered.

For years you said you were for small government, government and budgets just got bigger.
You said you would seal the border, our borders are wide open.
You said you were for lower taxes, our taxes are increasing.
You said you were for states rights, states appear to have less rights.

You cave in to all Democratic demands even though you have the majority in the house and senate.
You have sold us out to the special interests.

Now you want to manipulate and steal the election.
How freaking tone deaf are you?

You ran on change, we elected you and you did NOTHING!

Now because you are not happy with the peoples choices you are doing your best to manipulate the outcome of the election. You are doing your best to force Marco Rubio on us.
Despite that his views on immigration are counter to what the people want.
Despite that he is not honest about his agenda.
Despite that he is acting like a petulant child.

You write talking points for him that makes him sound like an illiterate talking head.
Then you give your talking points to all your pundits on Fox News.
You roll out Mitt Romney (Who ran a weak losing campaign and brought us Obama) to read your talking points also.

We are not idiots.

So here is a warning you better take heed.
BACK OFF AND LET THE ELECTION PROCESS WORK!

If you do not, the GOP as we know it will never recover.
You must change. You must stand for the change that the people want.

We want to be represented by people in Washington that will do what they say they will do.
Who will be honest.
Who will not give in to special interests.
Who will run the government “For the People, by the People and answerable to the PEOPLE!”

The revolution is here. You might not like Trump or Cruz, but AMERICANS are sending a signal.
We are fed up with your lies.
You represent us. YOU DO NOT CONTROL US!
Do not take us for granted.

If so you will incur our wrath and it will not be pretty.
You will be force to walk the plank. McCain, McConnell, Priebus, all of you.

What has Obama done or Why Ferguson went down as it did……

To understand President Obama and his actions we need to start with where he came from. He called himself a community organizer but what if he is a community agitator? What if he thinks that the Government can lift Blacks out of poverty by causing a social revolution as in socialism?

When Obama came into office there were “welfare to work” programs established by President Clinton. For some unexplained reason Obama signed these out of existence.  Now these programs were actually working.

Obama had ran on a platform of helping the blacks, making things equal. He told them that they were “entitled” to things.

Then he was elected and gave out welfare checks, disabilities and free “Obama Phones”.

The poor Black communities thought that they hit the gold mine. The Government spigot was turned on and they were filling their proverbial pot ‘o Gold. But they wanted more. Soon the news was full of stories of flash mobs, where mobs of black youth invaded stores and took whatever they wanted. Stealing everything.
Now Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton wanted their pot of Gold so they waited on an opportunity to take advantage of.

They got it one evening in Florida when Treyvon Martin met a community patrol officer named Zimmermann.

Even though the shooting was deemed legal it was presented to the world by Jesse, Al and Barrack, as a white on black hate crime, when in essence it was a case of an over zealous guard and a aggressive entitled youth who had been taught that all things can be resolved through violence. Even when black on white murder was increasing sharply and black on black crime in Chicago skyrocketed, the media and government focused on the isolated white on black crimes.

How is this related to Ferguson? Michael Brown had watched and listened to the propaganda floated by Obama, Jackson and Sharpton. He felt entitled, that everything was his for the taking and if anyone resisted violence was acceptable. Why not? The flash mobs were never punished, everything else in his life came for free. He was entitled.
So when he and his buddy went to the local store he thought nothing of stealing some cigars. When confronted by the store owner who was just trying to make a living we saw Michael Brown on video using violence, force, threats and intimidation to get his way.

But the store owner believed in the system. He called to Police to report the theft. But the black community have been taught to not trust the police. So even if officer Wilson was correct is using deadly force to protect his life, the liberals in this country will blame him, because they have been taught by Obama that the blacks in the US have been discriminated against so they should always be given the benefit of the doubt.

So what did the community do? First they rioted and used it as an excuse to rob their local businesses.

Ferguson Burns

Then when the verdict was issued (correctly in my mind) they looted and then burned down their community. They got their free beer and tennis shoes, then set fire to the local businesses their community depended on. They even looted the market where Michel Brown started this destruction.

They have been programmed to act this way. They know they will not be prosecuted, they know Obama will send cash to rebuild. They know that Obama will keep them down on the plantation and voting for the Democrats.

After all they live in an Obama socialist community and everything will or should be free because they are entitled to it.

 

Congress MUST start impeachment of Obama now.

Our President can no longer be trusted.
bird

 

 

 

 

 

He has lost and credibility and the respect of even Americas closest allies.
He is in the process of destroying the command structure of our military.
He has burdened American citizens with more debt than can ever be hoped to be repaid.
He is in the process of destroying our intelligence capabilities and agencies.
He is spying on everyone.
He is paranoid and a control freak.
He denied freedom of the press by intimidating, threatening and bribing the media.
He has used the IRS to spy and shut down political opponents.
He used the DOJ to funnel weapons to terrorists in Mexico, Syria and who knows where else.
#Benghazi
He has wasted millions on his “green” agenda.
He is attempting to kill energy / oil, gas independence.
He has instructed Federal agents not to enforce the Constitution that they swore to uphold.
Now he has been caught lying to all in America about healthcare and his socialist agenda.
He has flaunted the Constitution with his “Presidential ” authority acts, czars and illegal appointments.

I ask ALL Americans, Liberal, Conservative, Libertarian and independent to contact your representatives in Congress and demand that impeachment is brought upon Barrack Hussein Obama.
Our future as a nation depends on it.

Is technology destroying our youths urge for sex?

10/23/2013
Piratearian

 

When I was young many years ago, boys would stand on one side of the gym and girls on the other. If you were brave enough you asked your favorite girl to dance. Then if you were lucky enough she would give you her phone number! This brought with it it’s own risk and tougher challenge. “Making the call” You needed to bring up lots of courage to make that call, overcome all the anxieties and fears of rejection that came along with it.

If and when you made that call and it went well it led to more calls or even a date! I remember spending hours on the phone with female friends, talking until the wee hours. Then we would go out together or in a group. There you got to know each other, became accustom to their scent, their smile and other mannerisms that are a part of the centuries old mating ritual. This is how relationships were formed, maturity was gained and love was found. Without knowing it you were developing skills you would have for the rest of your life.

I fear that technology is once again changing everything and not in a good way. I just read that in Japan youth for the most part are not as interested in dating or sex, they are as a society losing their desire. Is it because of technology? The youth in Japan were the early adopters of social media and mobile communications. They were first with cell phones and online chatting en mass.  The cell phone has become a addiction. You go out to dinner and instead of 4 friends having a great time socializing and sharing with each other, you see 4 obsessed people tapping on their phones, each in their own little cyber world virtually ignoring their friends or family.

Now going back to school…
Instead of going to a dance or other social gathering a boy or a girl just reaches out on FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest.  There is no more shyness, it is not hard to communicate, it is not in person. They live with a “virtual wall” between them, this gives them security. It allows them to do things or say things they would never do in public. Many of these kids lock themselves up in their rooms with their cellphones or laptops and engage in real small talk, speaking more in statements than to each other. This even goes to the point where they express their desire online to “hook up” and wait for a response from a willing partner. It is advanced communication but it does them no good in growing up or gaining experience in the real world. It also demeans human relationships and short circuits the centuries old mating rituals.

When these youth are together at school, many who are friends online walk right past each other, they ignore each other, their socially awkwardness is magnified. If they do communicate together it is “hey” “Hi” or a nod of the head.

These youths are going out to the real world, college or work without social skills, with poor writing skills. They are not prepared to interact politely with strangers. They sit in meetings and interviews holding their phones like a lifeline as if it was their only way to communicate.

I fear that youth in America are far down the same path as the Japanese. Will this lead to a disintegration of the family as we know it? Will the cellphone / computer generation lead to an end to romance? Has technology found a way to dehumanize our society?

These are challenges confronting America today. The question is, is this generational? Will future generations change? Or has technology and corporate greed for profits finally found a way to kill our society as we know it in the name of progress?

Of Wolves, Sheep and Sheepdogs. (I am a Sheepdog)

On Sheep, Wolves, and Sheepdogs – Dave Grossman

By LTC (RET) Dave Grossman, author of “On Killing.”

Honor never grows old, and honor rejoices the heart of age. It does so because honor is, finally, about defending those noble and worthy things that deserve defending, even if it comes at a high cost. In our time, that may mean social disapproval, public scorn, hardship, persecution, or as always,even death itself. The question remains: What is worth defending? What is worth dying for? What is worth living for? – William J. Bennett – in a lecture to the United States Naval Academy November 24, 1997

One Vietnam veteran, an old retired colonel, once said this to me:

“Most of the people in our society are sheep. They are kind, gentle, productive creatures who can only hurt one another by accident.” This is true. Remember, the murder rate is six per 100,000 per year, and the aggravated assault rate is four per 1,000 per year. What this means is that the vast majority of Americans are not inclined to hurt one another. Some estimates say that two million Americans are victims of violent crimes every year, a tragic, staggering number, perhaps an all-time record rate of violent crime. But there are almost 300 million Americans, which means that the odds of being a victim of violent crime is considerably less than one in a hundred on any given year. Furthermore, since many violent crimes are committed by repeat offenders, the actual number of violent citizens is considerably less than two million.

Thus there is a paradox, and we must grasp both ends of the situation: We may well be in the most violent times in history, but violence is still remarkably rare. This is because most citizens are kind, decent people who are not capable of hurting each other, except by accident or under extreme provocation. They are sheep.

I mean nothing negative by calling them sheep. To me it is like the pretty, blue robin’s egg. Inside it is soft and gooey but someday it will grow into something wonderful. But the egg cannot survive without its hard blue shell. Police officers, soldiers, and other warriors are like that shell, and someday the civilization they protect will grow into something wonderful.? For now, though, they need warriors to protect them from the predators.

“Then there are the wolves,” the old war veteran said, “and the wolves feed on the sheep without mercy.” Do you believe there are wolves out there who will feed on the flock without mercy? You better believe it. There are evil men in this world and they are capable of evil deeds. The moment you forget that or pretend it is not so, you become a sheep. There is no safety in denial.

“Then there are sheepdogs,” he went on, “and I’m a sheepdog. I live to protect the flock and confront the wolf.”

If you have no capacity for violence then you are a healthy productive citizen, a sheep. If you have a capacity for violence and no empathy for your fellow citizens, then you have defined an aggressive sociopath, a wolf. But what if you have a capacity for violence, and a deep love for your fellow citizens? What do you have then? A sheepdog, a warrior, someone who is walking the hero’s path. Someone who can walk into the heart of darkness, into the universal human phobia, and walk out unscathed

Let me expand on this old soldier’s excellent model of the sheep, wolves, and sheepdogs. We know that the sheep live in denial, that is what makes them sheep. They do not want to believe that there is evil in the world. They can accept the fact that fires can happen, which is why they want fire extinguishers, fire sprinklers, fire alarms and fire exits throughout their kids’ schools.

But many of them are outraged at the idea of putting an armed police officer in their kid’s school. Our children are thousands of times more likely to be killed or seriously injured by school violence than fire, but the sheep’s only response to the possibility of violence is denial. The idea of someone coming to kill or harm their child is just too hard, and so they chose the path of denial.

The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, can not and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheep dog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed. The world cannot work any other way, at least not in a representative democracy or a republic such as ours.

Still, the sheepdog disturbs the sheep. He is a constant reminder that there are wolves in the land. They would prefer that he didn’t tell them where to go, or give them traffic tickets, or stand at the ready in our airports in camouflage fatigues holding an M-16. The sheep would much rather have the sheepdog cash in his fangs, spray paint himself white, and go, “Baa.”

Until the wolf shows up. Then the entire flock tries desperately to hide behind one lonely sheepdog.

The students, the victims, at Columbine High School were big, tough high school students, and under ordinary circumstances they would not have had the time of day for a police officer. They were not bad kids; they just had nothing to say to a cop. When the school was under attack, however, and SWAT teams were clearing the rooms and hallways, the officers had to physically peel those clinging, sobbing kids off of them. This is how the little lambs feel about their sheepdog when the wolf is at the door.

Look at what happened after September 11, 2001 when the wolf pounded hard on the door. Remember how America, more than ever before, felt differently about their law enforcement officers and military personnel? Remember how many times you heard the word hero?

Understand that there is nothing morally superior about being a sheepdog; it is just what you choose to be. Also understand that a sheepdog is a funny critter: He is always sniffing around out on the perimeter, checking the breeze, barking at things that go bump in the night, and yearning for a righteous battle. That is, the young sheepdogs yearn for a righteous battle. The old sheepdogs are a little older and wiser, but they move to the sound of the guns when needed right along with the young ones.

Here is how the sheep and the sheepdog think differently. The sheep pretend the wolf will never come, but the sheepdog lives for that day. After the attacks on September 11, 2001, most of the sheep, that is, most citizens in America said, “Thank God I wasn’t on one of those planes.” The sheepdogs, the warriors, said, “Dear God, I wish I could have been on one of those planes. Maybe I could have made a difference.” When you are truly transformed into a warrior and have truly invested yourself into warriorhood, you want to be there. You want to be able to make a difference.

There is nothing morally superior about the sheepdog, the warrior, but he does have one real advantage. Only one. And that is that he is able to survive and thrive in an environment that destroys 98 percent of the population. There was research conducted a few years ago with individuals convicted of violent crimes. These cons were in prison for serious, predatory crimes of violence: assaults, murders and killing law enforcement officers. The vast majority said that they specifically targeted victims by body language: slumped walk, passive behavior and lack of awareness. They chose their victims like big cats do in Africa, when they select one out of the herd that is least able to protect itself.

Some people may be destined to be sheep and others might be genetically primed to be wolves or sheepdogs. But I believe that most people can choose which one they want to be, and I’m proud to say that more and more Americans are choosing to become sheepdogs.

Seven months after the attack on September 11, 2001, Todd Beamer was honored in his hometown of Cranbury, New Jersey. Todd, as you recall, was the man on Flight 93 over Pennsylvania who called on his cell phone to alert an operator from United Airlines about the hijacking. When he learned of the other three passenger planes that had been used as weapons, Todd dropped his phone and uttered the words, “Let’s roll,” which authorities believe was a signal to the other passengers to confront the terrorist hijackers. In one hour, a transformation occurred among the passengers – athletes, business people and parents. — from sheep to sheepdogs and together they fought the wolves, ultimately saving an unknown number of lives on the ground.

There is no safety for honest men except by believing all possible evil of evil men. – Edmund Burke

Here is the point I like to emphasize, especially to the thousands of police officers and soldiers I speak to each year. In nature the sheep, real sheep, are born as sheep. Sheepdogs are born that way, and so are wolves. They didn’t have a choice. But you are not a critter. As a human being, you can be whatever you want to be. It is a conscious, moral decision.

If you want to be a sheep, then you can be a sheep and that is okay, but you must understand the price you pay. When the wolf comes, you and your loved ones are going to die if there is not a sheepdog there to protect you. If you want to be a wolf, you can be one, but the sheepdogs are going to hunt you down and you will never have rest, safety, trust or love. But if you want to be a sheepdog and walk the warrior’s path, then you must make a conscious and moral decision every day to dedicate, equip and prepare yourself to thrive in that toxic, corrosive moment when the wolf comes knocking at the door.

For example, many officers carry their weapons in church.? They are well concealed in ankle holsters, shoulder holsters or inside-the-belt holsters tucked into the small of their backs.? Anytime you go to some form of religious service, there is a very good chance that a police officer in your congregation is carrying. You will never know if there is such an individual in your place of worship, until the wolf appears to massacre you and your loved ones.

I was training a group of police officers in Texas, and during the break, one officer asked his friend if he carried his weapon in church. The other cop replied, “I will never be caught without my gun in church.” I asked why he felt so strongly about this, and he told me about a cop he knew who was at a church massacre in Ft. Worth, Texas in 1999. In that incident, a mentally deranged individual came into the church and opened fire, gunning down fourteen people. He said that officer believed he could have saved every life that day if he had been carrying his gun. His own son was shot, and all he could do was throw himself on the boy’s body and wait to die. That cop looked me in the eye and said, “Do you have any idea how hard it would be to live with yourself after that?”

Some individuals would be horrified if they knew this police officer was carrying a weapon in church. They might call him paranoid and would probably scorn him. Yet these same individuals would be enraged and would call for “heads to roll” if they found out that the airbags in their cars were defective, or that the fire extinguisher and fire sprinklers in their kids’ school did not work. They can accept the fact that fires and traffic accidents can happen and that there must be safeguards against them.

Their only response to the wolf, though, is denial, and all too often their response to the sheepdog is scorn and disdain. But the sheepdog quietly asks himself, “Do you have and idea how hard it would be to live with yourself if your loved ones attacked and killed, and you had to stand there helplessly because you were unprepared for that day?”

It is denial that turns people into sheep. Sheep are psychologically destroyed by combat because their only defense is denial, which is counterproductive and destructive, resulting in fear, helplessness and horror when the wolf shows up.

Denial kills you twice. It kills you once, at your moment of truth when you are not physically prepared: you didn’t bring your gun, you didn’t train. Your only defense was wishful thinking. Hope is not a strategy. Denial kills you a second time because even if you do physically survive, you are psychologically shattered by your fear helplessness and horror at your moment of truth.

Gavin de Becker puts it like this in Fear Less, his superb post-9/11 book, which should be required reading for anyone trying to come to terms with our current world situation: “…denial can be seductive, but it has an insidious side effect. For all the peace of mind deniers think they get by saying it isn’t so, the fall they take when faced with new violence is all the more unsettling.”

Denial is a save-now-pay-later scheme, a contract written entirely in small print, for in the long run, the denying person knows the truth on some level.

And so the warrior must strive to confront denial in all aspects of his life, and prepare himself for the day when evil comes. If you are warrior who is legally authorized to carry a weapon and you step outside without that weapon, then you become a sheep, pretending that the bad man will not come today. No one can be “on” 24/7, for a lifetime. Everyone needs down time. But if you are authorized to carry a weapon, and you walk outside without it, just take a deep breath, and say this to yourself…

“Baa.”

This business of being a sheep or a sheep dog is not a yes-no dichotomy. It is not an all-or-nothing, either-or choice. It is a matter of degrees, a continuum. On one end is an abject, head-in-the-sand-sheep and on the other end is the ultimate warrior. Few people exist completely on one end or the other. Most of us live somewhere in between. Since 9-11 almost everyone in America took a step up that continuum, away from denial. The sheep took a few steps toward accepting and appreciating their warriors, and the warriors started taking their job more seriously. The degree to which you move up that continuum, away from sheephood and denial, is the degree to which you and your loved ones will survive, physically and psychologically at your moment of truth.

Dear President Obama: (An angry Pirate goes on a rant)

8/22/2013

Mr. President, I am a concerned American. I have never been involved in politics until recently.

I am horrified with the path you are taking America down.
Before when we elected Presidents it was understood that once the election was over the President would govern fairly for ALL people. Black, white, red, yellow. Republican, Democrat, Independent, Libertarian.

You have changed all that. You promised hope and change, well we got the change but have little hope.

You claimed you would be transparent. Yet you spy on all Americans with the NSA and the IRS. You store our emails our phone calls, everything we do. “Just in case” you need it. 1000’s of your contractors have access to our information and are using it to promote your agenda. Then you send your minions out to lie to us.

Where has our freedom gone? Have you forgotten our Constitution?
You say you would support whistle blowers who tell the truth, but they are threatened, abused, harassed and fired. You treat them as criminals.

It appears to me that you are doing everything in your power to destroy this great country.

You overburden the economy with regulations.
You appear to have no grasp of the Constitution or the separation of powers for checks and balances.

You side with terrorists, encouraging them and supporting them to the detriment of America’s allies. You have done more harm to U.S. foreign policy than any other President in my opinion. The “Arab Spring you and Hillary encouraged has been a disaster.
You work to destabilize the middle east by sending weapons to our enemies who are the same terrorists who brought down the World Trade Center.
You allow Americans to be slaughtered in Benghazi, Libya. A ambassador, and 3 other heroes. When the ex Navy Seals called for help you went to bed and could not be bothered.


Now you ignore the use of chemical weapons in Syria while children die.

Financially you have buried us in more debt than any other President. We will most likely never fully recover from this without a worldwide bankruptcy. Of course you and Michelle and your political allies are riding high on the hog.

Domestically Eric Holder is doing your dirty work. Sending weapons to Mexico so you can blame Americans of selling guns to drug cartels. Allowing Brian Terry to DIE for your political agenda.

But now you are starting race wars. You ignore the death and carnage in your hometown of Chicago. You actually act like nothing is wrong when the people you once organized murder each other and commit genocide.

But then Treyvon Martin happened. A teenager already in trouble with the law. NOT the young child you had your media show us. First you went and stirred the pot saying “I could have been Treyvon”.
Then after George Zimmerman was found “Not Guilty” you went and stirred the pot some more implying that the verdict was wrong and the “gun” was to blame. (I am not even going to get started on your attempts to disarm our 2nd rights)
But now because of you, Eric Holder, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and the media, Black youth are on the rampage in America. Gangs roam the streets and see how many whites they can “knockout” others enter stores in mobs and steal what they want.
Young “bored” gang banger wannabes go out and randomly MURDER an innocent college student from Australia.
Then today there was news of a World War 2 vet. 89 minding his own business when 2 Black youth decided to beat him to death. http://www.kxly.com/news/spokane-news/elderly-man-dies-after-being-attacked-outside-ice-arena/-/101214/21574858/-/9flm7iz/-/index.html What are you going to do to stop the violence you encouraged the Black youth to commit?

Then I hear that you are training DHS for civil unrest? Stockpiling bullets, building FEMA camps?

It appears to me that you are doing this all on purpose. Your goal is to destroy America. You are doing a good job, but we are on to you.
We are not going to take the bait.

The anger with you in America is palatable. There are many calls to impeach you.
You and America have lost the respect of the world community.

I will do whatever I can to get the truth out. So will many others, for there are millions of us who love America and the freedom she promises.
I can predict with confidence that your party will be devastated in the next elections and it is all because of the destruction you wrought.

You are not big enough or smart enough (even with Geroge Soros backing you) to destroy AMERICA.
We have been awakened like the “Sleeping Giant”

You will be removed from office. Your co conspirators in the DOJ, IRS, EPA will go to jail.

We are on to your lies and your manipulation.
We will not stand for it any longer.
We will not allow you or the Muslim Brotherhood to bring your perverted sense of justice to America.
Our allies will not let you help the Brotherhood bring their terrorism to their part of the world.

We will stop you. We know your game plan now. We read your book.

Looking for stories of YOUR military heroes for project. Please respond with your story.

Have you lost someone you loved who gave their life in the service of their country in the military? Army, Navy, Marine Corps.

Did they die in Korea, Viet Nam, Iraq, Afghanistan? Did they give their lives being heroes at Camp Pendleton, Fort Bragg or Fort Campbell?

If so I would like to hear your story of them. I want to hear who they were up to the point where they entered the service and why.

Then when did they pass.

I want your personal story. Short or long.

Who were they growing up? What made them who they were? Were they a football hero? Did they play baseball? What did they do in school, who did they love. What were their goals? What made them special?

Please tell me their story so I may honor them. You can use their real name or add a fictional name.

If you have pictures of them growing up that would be great too.

I want to create stories to honor them, to let the world know where heroes come from. Who they were before they entered the military.
