"Thus, Arizona's modest enforcement measures are under attack by the very federal government whose failure to secure the border precipitated their adoption. Is Arizona at the mercy of the Obama administration, or does it have some options here?
"For one thing, Arizona can form and expand its own state militia. Such forces were common when our nation was founded, and the Second Amendment recognizes that a "well-regulated Militia" is "necessary to the security of a free State." In short, Arizona and other states can raise and arm their own military forces. But, for what purpose can such forces legally act?"

Wachovia/Wells Fargo has been laundering the Mexican Drug Cartel Money to a
tune of $380,000,000,000 the "government" fined them 160,000,000 letting
Wells Fargo keep $379,840,000,000
It was happening while it was Wachovia so the alleged Republicans were playing the Mexican Drug Cartel game too...
They think you are stupid, and they like the gravy train.
This crap has been going on for decades and financed the collapse of this country with dirty money .
The banks wash the blood off of it and even after they play both sides of the drug war building private prisons while they pretend they are fighting drugs. The mega banks have been caught laundering the Mexican Cartel money, and seeing as you can't grow cocaine in Mexico it's even bigger than that.
They love thee crime. It's profitable.
Left or right it's just rope a dope.
It's been going on over 40 years.
They think you are stupid.
Dock0 says: Drug trafficking is an important business to the Southern cartels as well as the Grand Poobah's administration. Failing to keep those drugs flowing is as important in Arizona as it was in Chicago - and there is no way that Obama is going to seal that border, because in his league, once you're bought, you had better stay bought, or you could get seriously dead.
The recent spate of border area violence is merely a matter of contract negotiation between the Southern drug cartels and the Mexican government and the Obama government - which also points out how serious these people are about keeping the product flowing.
Obama has to drag his feet and do
everything possible to keep that product flowing, and failing to keep it
flowing could have serious, possibly deadly, repercussions as far away as

The war when it comes will come through

"States have the authority to enforce immigration laws and protect their borders, Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox said Wednesday in a legal brief on behalf of nine states supporting Arizona's immigration law.
"Cox, one of five Republicans running for Michigan governor, said Michigan is the lead state backing Arizona in federal court and is joined by Alabama, Florida, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas and Virginia, as well as the Northern Mariana Islands."
And why they'd better:
"In the wake of the increasing levels of violence in the U.S.-Mexico boundaries and supporting the Obama administration's proposal, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger issued an order Friday to deploy National Guard troops to the California-Baja border.
"The administration's proposal contemplates the
deployment of 1,200 soldiers to halt drug trafficking and human smuggling
operations. Schwarzenegger’s order includes 224 troops that would be
stationed in California for a period of about a year."
"Make no mistake, with 12 million to 20 million illegal Mexicans and others living in America, it is an invasion. This is the real controversy and travesty, not Arizona's law, as many in our Fedzilla-inbred media dishonestly misrepresent.
"What is controversial is that Fedzilla is suing Arizona. Even with Fedzilla suing Arizona, numerous other states are considering passing laws just like Arizona's. Good. Do it now. My wish is to see Fedzilla sue 20 or 30 states. Come and get it."
One wonders when Ted will use his considerable wealth
and fame to form up the fighting force that could help defend the border, or
more importantly, invade the District of Commies and do what will be
required to restore Liberty.
"When Congress required most Americans to obtain health insurance or pay a penalty, Democrats denied that they were creating a new tax. But in court, the Obama administration and its allies now defend the requirement as an exercise of the government’s “power to lay and collect taxes.”
"And that power, they say, is even more sweeping than the federal power to regulate interstate commerce.
"Administration officials say the tax argument is a linchpin of their legal case in defense of the health care overhaul and its individual mandate, now being challenged in court by more than 20 states and several private organizations."
It will take many expensive suits hanging along
Pennsylvania Ave. to end their arrogance.
"Most economists argue that cutting benefits could slow recovery, describing benefits as direct economic stimulus because almost every penny of it gets spent. In a June 28 client note, Goldman Sachs said if all additional U.S. stimulus spending expires, it could slow the economy up to 1.5 percentage points from the fourth quarter 2010 to the second quarter of 2011."
What an interesting mess we are in. They almost have the population of desperate workers(wage slaves) they desire. And of course the commies will attempt to step in to save us.

"Harvard professor and prolific author Niall Ferguson opened the 2010
Aspen Ideas Festival Monday with a stark warning about the increasing
prospect of the American “empire” suddenly collapsing due to the
country’s rising debt level.
“I think this is a problem that is going to go live really soon,” Ferguson said. “In that sense, I mean within the next two years. Because the whole thing, fiscally and other ways, is very near the edge of chaos. And we’ve seen already in Greece what happens when the bond market loses faith in your fiscal policy.”
“I’ve just come back from China — a two-week trip there — and the thing I heard most often was, ‘You can’t lecture us about the superiority of your system anymore. We don’t need to learn anything from you about financial institutions and forget about democracy. We see where it has got you.’"
"In what he called his “light moment,” Ferguson said, “I think there is
a way out for the United States. I don’t think its over. But it all
hinges on whether you can re-energize the real mainsprings of American
power. And those two things are technological innovation and
"The Great Depression did not end
until after World War II. Why it lasted so long went unanswered until
Harold L. Cole, professor of economics at the
University of Pennsylvania, and
Lee E. Ohanian, professor of economics at UCLA, published their research
project "How Government Prolonged
the Depression" in the Journal of Political Economy (August 2004).
Professor Cole explained, "The fact that the Depression dragged on for
years convinced generations of economists and policymakers that
capitalism could not be trusted to recover from depressions and that
significant government intervention was required to achieve good
outcomes. Ironically, our work shows that the recovery would have been
very rapid had the government not intervened." Professors Cole and
Ohanian argue that FDR's economic policies added at least seven years to

"I’ve been occasionally watching Glenn Beck on the Fox News Channel and think he has done an admirable job of smoking out and identifying the shockingly hardcore, radical socialists who dominate the Obama administration. He has also done a generally good job talking about the libertarian founding principles of America, how they have been lost, and our duty to regain them. But he has been absolutely abysmal when discussing the subject of Lincoln, the War to Prevent Southern Independence, and its legacy. I suspect that the reason for this disconnect with historical reality is that: 1) The Fox News Channel is essentially a propaganda arm of the neoconservative political cabal that has captured the Republican Party; 2) One of the cornerstones of neocon ideology is Lincoln idolatry and hatred of the South and Southerners. (Professor Paul Gottfried, for one, has written extensively about this.) 3) Therefore, if Glenn wants to keep his gig at Fox, he must toe the party line on Lincoln. Being otherwise libertarian – while the Democrats are in power – serves the purposes of the neocon cabal nicely."
And this kind of thinking will, by ignorant tea partiers, will doom their efforts to restore Liberty because they lack a fundamental understanding of it: If you can't 'un-volunteer' from something you volunteered for, then you are a slave.
Here's DiLorenzo with more on that un-civil war and its implications...
"Grassroots favorite Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota plans to form a Tea Party caucus in the House.
“The House Tea Party Caucus will serve as an informal group of members dedicated to promote Americans’ call for fiscal responsibility, adherence to the Constitution and limited government,” Bachmann wrote in a Thursday letter to Rep. Robert Brady, chairman of the Committee on House Administration."
I'll respect them if their first resolution is to arrest, try for treason and execute every member of the House's 'Progressive(communist) Caucus.'
But I'm not holding my breath....
"Quite a cagey answer. “I have a target on me,” Paul
laughs. “If you take my shirt off, you can see the target on my back.” That
doesn’t mean, of course, that Paul shuns the spotlight — or will repudiate
his beliefs. If he wins in November, he says, he is interested in helping to
form a new “nucleus” of conservatives in the Senate — a “tea-party caucus.”
Does that mean he would consider voting for a GOP leader other than Sen.
Mitch McConnell, his fellow Kentucky Republican and Senate minority leader?
“Maybe,” Paul says. For now, however, he is pleased to have McConnell’s help
on the trail, especially after the senior senator backed Paul’s primary
"It is my contention that the Tea Party/Ron Paul libertarian political alliance can indeed save the Republic. it is not a perfect situation but it is better than the status quo or the continued statism our nation is headed towards. If you add followers of Christ to this mix, it would be an almost unbeatable combination."
Been saying similar things for years. But most of them
are too stupid to work together against our common domestic enemies, who are
white and who were born here and have spent their lives trying to overthrow
our form of government and will eventually have to be dealt with in a very
"An Iowa tea party group on Wednesday replaced a billboard comparing President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler and Vladimir Lenin, calling the sign a bad decision that reflected poorly on the organization.
"Workers papered over the sign in downtown Mason City at the request of the North Iowa Tea Party.
"We got it covered up first thing this morning," said Kent Beatty, the general manager of the company that owns the billboard.
"The roughly 200-member tea party group had the original sign put up last week. It showed photographs of Obama, Nazi leader Hitler and communist leader Lenin beneath the labels "Democrat Socialism" "National Socialism," and "Marxist Socialism."
It isn't name calling if it's true. The 'tea parties'
need to stiffen their backbones and label their domestic enemies with their
true names and stop wincing whenever "Liberal' garbage whines about it.

But can she hit a running "Liberal" at 300 meters?
"This media hostility to the NRA permeates the entire debate about guns
and violence in this country, and allows lie to be piled upon lie. When
NRA held a news conference to tell the media that a new Luntz-Weber poll
showed that most Americans don’t think gun control will reduce crime or
violence, the room was empty. When Handgun Control, Inc., called a news
conference around the same time to discuss the results of a Louis Harris
poll, the room was jammed with reporters and TV cameras, and the media
reported Handgun Control’s interpretation of the poll results as if it
were a papal encyclical."
"Fresh off a string of victories in the courts and Congress, the National Rifle Association is flexing political muscle outside its normal domain, with both Democrats and Republicans courting its favor and avoiding its wrath on issues that sometimes seem to have little to do with guns."
And of course the commie newswhores attribute all victories pertaining
to our most basic right to the No Rights that aren't Allowed group.
This is what the NRA should be teaching so we can run the Liberty haters out of our country:
"The Sedalia Democrat reports that, along with Missouri, the state where the report was written, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Texas, Utah and California will also host the National Guard Homeland Response Forces in the name of fighting terrorism. A unit will be placed within each of the regions established by FEMA, effectively implementing Federal powers at the state level preemptively."
Of course no 'American' would fire on another. See the video on the
'un-civil' war above.
"Seven congressmen, led by Senator Benjamin L. Cardin (D-MD), spent their 4th of July weekend hand delivering seeds to the Svalbard Global Seed Vault in Norway. The self proclaimed "Doomsday Vault" contains seeds from more than 525,000 crop varieties. It was constructed as a back-up storage facility to protect the existing world food supplies from destruction in the event of a devastating global catastrophe. Others believe it is part of a global conspiracy. The facility is constructed deep within a mountain to withstand changing variations in sea levels and even events such as a nuclear explosion. (thus the term "Doomsday Vault) The congressman delivered a wide variety of seeds including melons, peanuts, and beans. The seeds were donated by the United States Department Of Agriculture's National Plant Germplasm System in Colorado. Senator Cardin compared the seed vault in Svalbard to a giant safety deposit box."
Too bad they didn't freeze the congress commies
with the seed...
"A former senior advisor to President Bill Clinton says that the only thing which can rescue Barack Obama’s increasingly tenuous grip on power as his approval figures continue to plunge is a terror attack on the scale of Oklahoma City or 9/11, another startling reminder that such events only ever serve to benefit those in authority.
"Buried in a
Financial Times article about Obama’s “growing credibility crisis”
and fears on behalf of Democrats that they could lose not only the White
House but also the Senate to Republicans, Robert Shapiro makes it clear
that Obama is relying on an October surprise in the form of a terror
attack to rescue his presidency."
No other gods before me...
"The Humane Society of the United States recently released an undercover
video shot in Kentucky, depicting a cockfight. There are a lot of
sick violent "sports" out there, but cockfighting takes the cake -
it's an especially cruel practice in which two roosters are pitted
against one another savagely, often resulting in one or both being
maimed or killed."
"The Humane Society's video is troubling enough on its own merits. But what's really caused a firestorm of anger from many quarters is the presence of a Kentucky State Police trooper - in uniform, no less - being among the cheering participants."
Too bad we can't put the PETA Nazis and the "Liberal" freaks in a ring
and let 'em duke it out...
I became confused when I heard the word "Service" used with these agencies:

"But Westchester County has a problem more often seen in rural, Republican-leaning jurisdictions: coyotes. These canine predators are a real menace, a fact that was dramatically illustrated in late June by the case of young Emily Hodulik, age six, who was attacked by a pair of coyotes on a leafy suburban street in the quaint town of Rye. The coyotes’ offensive proceeded along classically predatory lines as the canines ignored the other children in the group and targeted the smallest, weakest child. Miss Hodulik suffered serious bite wounds but escaped without life-threatening injuries. She’s undergoing a series of rabies shots, doesn’t like to sleep alone, and is afraid that there are coyotes in the basement of the family home. Local officials have warned Westchester residents to keep an eye out for the beasts, especially if they have small children. "
"That is the essence of 21st-century progressivism: In matters ranging from financial derivatives to education to gun control, the Left believes that we face a choice between a masterful state and a Hobbesian war of all against all. For all of the smart set’s vaunted and self-congratulatory nuance, it is this absolutist vision, this Manichean horror, that forms the foundation of progressivism."
"To use lethal force in self-defense is the ultimate declaration of independence, a kind of momentary secession from the authority of the government whose laws and prisons and police officers have, in that moment, failed the citizen. To acknowledge the right to self-defense — and the concomitant right to be forearmed against aggressors — is to acknowledge that some things are outside the state and its authority, or at least that some moments are outside the state and its authority."
"Just as state schooling is not about education, but about the state, gun control is not about guns: It’s about control. A citizen who can fend for himself when the predators come or the schools fail is less inclined to look to the state for sustenance and oversight in other areas of life. To progressives, that’s an invitation to anarchy. To the men who wrote the Second Amendment, it was a condition of citizenship in a free republic. It’s what free men did, and do."
Nice article. But please stop using our domestic
enemies' code word: 'progressive.' They're communists. Label them as such.

Ron Paul: The war that's not a war
"For most Americans, we are at war — at war against a tactic called terrorism, not a country.
"This allows our military to go any place in the world without limits as to time or place.
"But how can we be at war? Congress has not declared war
as required by the Constitution."
Yep, they've been planning all this for a long time
Quote for the times
“The study of war should concentrate almost entirely on the actualities of war – the effects of tiredness, hunger, fear, lack of sleep, weather… The principles of strategy and tactics, and the logistics of war are really absurdly simple: It is the actualities that make war so complicated and so difficult. – Field Marshall Lord Wavell in a letter to B.H. Liddell Hart, as quoted in the book ‘On Combat’
"Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should
not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all
experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while
evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms
to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and
usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to
reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their
duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their
future security." -
The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America,
Adopted by Congress on July 4, 1776
(To the Founders, 'state' meant independent sovereign nation state,
that was voluntarily entering into the union and could theoretically un-volunteer later.)
