Our
leaders answer always to some inner voice, pretending not to hear
the voice of real Americans. They like to think that somehow they
are still in control when in fact this "unified America"
of which they prattle on endlessly, scares them to death, and rightly
so. Hence all the "anti-terrorist" and "homeland
security" acts directed not at the terrorist enemy, but at
the American people. They know we are flying those flags for reasons
that don't include homage to their greatness. Patriotism
is pretty scary to men and women who are bought and paid for by
international concerns. They like to pretend they invoked this outbreak
of patriotism but they did not — the terrorists attacked us and
it was a natural dynamic. The American people and the terrorists
are in complete agreement on one issue: America is a sovereign nation.
Our leaders are mighty worried about that.

That
they are truly concerned just now is obvious in how they trot over
to the studio to let Bill O'Reilly beat on them as if they were
managers at some greasy spoon rather than movers and shakers of
the free world. "OK Senator — I know you mean well but we've
been hearing that for years…" Why do they submit themselves
to that? I believe it is because they feel their power slipping
away but can't pin down why that is so appearing on TV, even in
a hostile environment like Fox News, helps remind them that they
matter. Self esteem you know — as taught by their handlers in the
teacher's unions.

They
have no real idea just how angry we are at hearing our President
and self appointed War Leader prattle on about we should love Muslims.
Earth to Dubya — it was Muslims that blew up the Cole, that bombed
and later destroyed the World Trade Center. It's time for Muslims
to be reaching out to us, not the reverse. It was your friends the
Saudis who were the major players in all this and no matter how
many Afghanis you kill Mr. War Leader, we still know that you are
covering for the true terrorists. All your globalist nonsense is
going right up in smoke before your eyes yet still you preach to
us as if we should somehow be buying into that failed mumbo jumbo
called multi-culturalism.

To
you who tell us we should get behind the president's policies —
I ask simply, "What policies?" He wants to destroy
the forces of evil in the world. Well partner, that's a pretty
broad policy objective so I'll have to ask the traditional questions:
how much will it cost me and whom do I have to kill? Well the answer
from government and media is that Muslims are our best friends and
are virtual co-religionists with Christians and our task is to both
love them and kill them, at great personal expense, and without
malice. And while we may have made a lot of it ourselves, people
who use Anthrax as a weapon are bad. OK, I guess that will have
to do in lieu of a real policy.

Bush
actually suggested, in the midst of the Anthrax scare, that our
children exchange letters and become pen pals with Afghani children.
This poor sad fellow is willing to put your children at risk to
preserve this devilish hoax of multi-culturalism. I don't make this
stuff up — who could?

Are
you aware that our tough talking war leader who will root out terrorists
where ever they are, is still warm and cozy with them in Macedonia
where thirteen policemen were brutally murdered by Islamic terrorists
this week? His buddies the Saudis have refused to freeze bin Laden's
funds and have refused to help at all in this investigation. They
have refused us the use of the military bases we built at US taxpayer
expense to protect the House of Saud. Some of our planes are actually
flying to Afghanistan from as far as Missouri because of that. Bush,
who like his Daddy, is loyal to his Saudi masters has now declared
that there will be a state of Palestine — in gratitude to the Saudis
for exactly nothing in return. It's a fine bargainer we've put in
charge of negotiation with these foreigners. Quid pro quo? He don't
need no stinkin' quid pro quo. One wonders what the taxpayers would
have to do to get that kind of response from the president.

Have
you figured out yet that all that the gazillion dollars worth of
"forward staged" weaponry and armor we have stockpiled
in Saudi Arabia is just sitting there as a gift wrapped package
to international terror? That six thousand American servicemen are
keeping that equipment in fighting trim for them, yet are unable
to even display a crucifix around their neck in the presence of
those ungrateful Arabian Sheiks and their hirelings? I guess that
is how Muslims show their tolerance for others — certainly a fine
group of people and I'm sure we'd all be happy to give up a son
or two in defense of these folks.

So
how serious are we about fighting this war? Are we protecting our
own troops or kowtowing to a bought and paid for coalition? If Bush
is so serious about this war, why were thousands of Pakistani "fighters"
allowed to walk across the border into Afghanistan? Most of them
were armed to the teeth, marching under the bright glare of the
TV camera, with the expressed intention of joining up with their
hero, bin Laden! Is there some reason why these people were not
attacked? We are talking thousands of armed supporters of international
terror who may well have constituted the biggest target of opportunity
in history — yet Mr. War Leader is content to let them join the
very people our ground troops are soon to fight. Bush is content
to wait until they are dug in up to their eyebrows where no fighter-bomber
can hurt them and then I guess, the fight starts. Or maybe we should
exchange addresses with them and become pen pals?

I
look at this, and at the farce of airport security and I blush at
the stupidity around me. A reader had informed me that the security
types in DC wear Muslim headdress but it sounded so crazy that I
was hesitant to print that information without confirmation. Well
the confirmation is in
— it turns out that Argenbright Security,
which was lambasted recently for letting an armed man through their
checkpoint, had been earlier taken to task by government bozos for
insisting that their security people look like Americans. The result
was courses in Islamic awareness — certain to drive off any competent
security personnel.

Of
course you've noticed that "government security" means
destroyed skyscrapers and intensive body searches of blue eyed blonds
while well meaning cops and National Guardsmen stand around looking
perplexed, wondering just what it is they are supposed to be doing.
It gets worse of course — in Georgia, the scalawag who bought the
governor's office called out the Guard but forbade them to carry
those mean ole guns for fear that someone might be offended. He
seems to have missed the meaning of the term "Armed Forces."
So while you submit yourself to degrading and annoying delays as
a passenger, the Muslims who work at the airport go merrily about
their business, assuming no doubt, that Allah has rendered their
enemies insane.

For
the record, no country can ever be secure with open borders. We
are not immune to that truism and the results were seen on a dark
day last September. Let's see what our leaders do to correct this
problem. So far, they have done exactly nothing, or worse.

Let's
start by considering the case of that despicable governor of Georgia,
Roy Barnes. He wishes to have a special Georgia ID card issued to
illegal immigrants for "convenience." Amazingly his rationale
is that this will help the police with traffic stops — traffic stops
that could and should of course, be arrests! Like most government
weasels he would rather have the revenue from a traffic citation
then protect his state or country from terrorists. He is in fact,
visiting with Vicente Fox this week, to determine how he can best
betray the citizens he purports to represent. How many other governors
are up to the same shenanigans? Michigan is now considered to be
the largest Islamic community in America. I wonder how that resonates
with the folks in that state who find their world turned upside
down and were never given so much as a nod to let them know that
this would be happening to them and their communities?

Most
of these government villains are by trade lawyers, yet they do not
enforce the laws we pay them to enforce. Perhaps in their years
of heaping up fat salaries manipulating corporations and defending
criminals, they pick up a mindset that is inconsistent with the
integrity required of men in responsible public positions.

Let's
not forget that preeminent of all rascals, the Lord's own Judgment
on America, Billy Jeff Clinton. The one who released terrorists
from prison at his wife's behest, and who depleted our strategic
oil reserves to make his administration look good by holding fuel
prices down, just before we found ourselves in a global war.
Please, tell me again why such a creature is walking around this
country as a free man? Have we forgotten that treason is a crime?

I
submit that there is an answer to all this. Last year the Atlanta
Braves completed an unspectacular season of baseball that was at
times, actually embarrassing to watch. Their hitting was poor from
first year rookie to Andrew Jones himself, and it was not an accident
that the World Series played out without them. Despite the constant
blathering by the announcers about what a great batting coach the
Braves had in Merv Rettemund, that worthy was terminated (and justly)
at the end of the season. Can we learn a lesson from that? Why
should we tolerate incompetence in government when we do not in
baseball?

Why
do we tolerate inept bunglers and worse in positions of leadership?
Why have we not stood up in righteous anger and subjected our leaders
to arrest in large numbers for the crimes of treason and malfeasance?
Our borders are not protected, our money is treated
with greedy indifference. The constitution is utterly ignored and
the "Patriot Act" was passed with out even being read
by most of our "representatives." That's how Hitler came
to power folks, only it was called the "Enabling Act"
then and it was for the good of the Homeland; pardon me, I mean,
the Fatherland.

Why
ask why? The real answer is "so what". They control the
schools and all will be fine in a couple of more years. There will
be no more whining about outdated constitutions, Christian morality,
and dead white males. Islam will be embraced like any and all cultural
constructs, with the exception of Christianity. Since Christian
doctrine has that nasty little construct with it, that all men are
sinners and are accountable for their actions, we'll be done with
it and move on. (Unbelievers might wish to reconsider at this point
given the fact that Christianity is the only religion this
world system actively hates and suppresses — that ought to tell
you something!)

Here
is how the schools are helping, in a depressing example from a reader
who is a 12th grade history teacher.

"I
just wanted to tell you how incredulous they got when I suggested
that, to preserve our rights and return to the limited government
that was intended and designed for this country, we might be forced
to secede, as our Founding Fathers once did. I could not convince
them on principle that if they valued freedom, the Constitution,
and limited government, this might be the only option left to preserve
these institutions. Many were resigned to accept that since government
has always “progressed” to become more intrusive as the natural
order of things, they were willing to accept it as unchangeable."

That
our children think government has always "progressed"
is a very scary thought indeed. The implications are horrendous
but make sense given the way our politically correct media / government
complex skews history and morality. Like in the old blues number
where the vocal goes, "Think about your future baby, forget
about your u2018used to be'." That's it isn't it? Why should
we care whom we were, when the future is rolling down the
tracks straight at us and this wild ride will just keep getting
better.

As
I write, Kabul appears to have fallen to the Northern Alliance.
The executions have begun as one tribe of Afghanis displaces another
in what we fail to see is an age-old ritual of blood and fire. Osama
bin Laden remains to be found but the war against people who didn't
bomb the World Trade Center is going just fine. Hundreds are dead
as another jet plane mysteriously falls from the sky into New York
and we are being told that the airlines are safer when an engine
just falls off the wing than when Ahab the A-rab puts a bomb in
the hold. Sure, whatever.

What
genuinely worries me though, is the inexorable dynamic that is growing
in the Balkans. We have the bad guy terrorists on the run in Afghanistan.
The good guy terrorists are pressing their attacks in Macedonia
— it is plausible to assume that given their NATO support, they
will win. Confused yet? So just for the heck of it, could someone
tell me what happens if the bad guy terrorists decide it might make
sense to join their cousins in the Balkans, where thousands of American
troops are "safely" ensconced in Camp Bondsteel? The trick
to understanding this is to realize that the good guy terrorists
and the bad guy terrorists are actually the same terrorists; they
are separated only by geography.

What
a diversion that could be, for someone who wished us harm. Does
anyone in a leadership position understand the term, "worst
case scenario?" The rules of engineering are not sustained
by the Congressional will — the truth of it is that God created
an orderly world and you can't escape the consequences of forgetting
His nature when you're tramping all over that world in conqueror's
boots.

Our
American politicians have the long-range goal of subjecting us gently
to the yoke. No plan is in effect — it's all done in real time without
for thought. Although many of them don't realize it yet there is
a dynamic created each time one of them does a favor for a "friend."
Often that "friend" is a segment of the American people,
such as school teachers or the ethnic group d'jour. That
"favor" creates or impacts legislation that becomes part
of a mosaic of injustice. No legislation is ever vetted against
the clear intent of the founders nor could it be sustained if it
were. This has created a huge mountain of law to whom only the politically
correct can subject themselves without fear of sanction. I submit
that this may have been unintentional but malice is not required
when incompetence and yes, malfeasance conspire to work together.
Our masters have no view of a big picture, each works in their own
little piece of the picture with the connecting thread of intent,
which is always self-aggrandizement.

Now
for President we have Bush the Second, perhaps a better man than
some but a product of this system and an advocate of it. He lies
without blushing. "An attack upon freedom," says he. Meanwhile
he cranks up that treasury printing press, destroying your future
and mine.

What
happens when these leaders, these idols we have set up for ourselves,
face the next crisis?

We
know the answer to that. The answer is always the same, the people
who created the mess will distance themselves from the issue, then
step up to the plate like real heroes and start forming a coalition.
It will be merely the next event in our new "all war all the
time" world, preferably with few American casualties. More
civil liberties will be lost in America and our economy will suffer
but the Brave New World marches on. I suppose watching the destruction
of Western Civilization would be much easier to take if at least
we were being brought down by some conqueror other then this writhing
nest of snakes we raised up for ourselves. It somehow reminds me
of the classic "B" movie from years ago — the one called
"Killer
Klowns From Outer Space
."
