Mr. Smith goes to Washington, 2010 elections, People not platitudes

I had already generally decided what I was going to write this morning by late afternoon yesterday. Later I discovered that TCM was playing “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” starring Jimmy Stewart. Of course I had to watch it again. Perhaps the movie is a bit sentimental, a bit schmaltzy. Well, I like it and I like what the movie and Jimmy Stewart stand for. I am also reminded of another favorite of mine, “It’s a Wonderful Life” also starring Jimmy Stewart where Stewart speaks of all the everyday people who do the living and the dying.

We often speak in platitudes that involve patriotism, the flag, the US Constitution and lofty ideals, but what does this really mean? Jimmy Stewart, in the movie speaks of being free when his ancestors were not. We certainly should never take our freedom for granted. But it also means justice for all and a level playing field of opportunity. In simple terms it means working together for our common safety and prosperity.

When I began covering the issues surrounding Obama, the 2008 elections and the takeover of this country by un American elements, many people in my life questioned my zeal. I explained to them that I had never experienced or read about anything so radical, so drastic happening in this country before. And when  I say that, I include the American Civil War. Many people I talked to could not understand my motives. Of course, they were not really paying attention. They were lulled into a false sense of security. Many were fooled by a promise of change, a sense of a better world, a better life, not unlike the surreal world that played out for the German people in the early 1930’s.

I was concerned then as I am now that the world that I grew up in, where there were people like “Mr. Smith” who believed in what this country stood for and were willing to sacrifice all to defend it was disappearing. That we were entering a world more like that of “1984” by George Orwell where people are not free to live and think and speak out.

Over the past several years I have been watching the economy falter and our Justice system decline. I have watched the news of the housing market and jobs data go from bad to worse. This has been troubling on the macro level. The big picture. But what does all of this really mean?

Here is where this really hits home. This is why I and so many of you have been fighting to save this country. In my daily life I have watched as those around me have lost faith in the institutions of our country. As they have lost faith in obtaining jobs and in supporting their family and most importantly in the future of this country.

It really hits you in the face in the despair you see in the countenance of a friend, who is fighting depression from struggles on many fronts. The economy is not helping. In the checkout line yesterday at the grocery store, the lady who took my money seemed frazzled. She told me that she was working 3 jobs and about to divorce her husband. God bless her.

It really hits home when you hear of a real tragedy. A lady I know recently lost her son in law. He committed suicide. He was around 40, had 3 children and had been out of work for over a year and a half.

This is what the platitudes are all about. People. People with a common bond to live free, raise their families in a safe environment with hope for the future. This is why we must continue to fight to save this country. That is what it is all about.

The 2010 elections are less than a month away. We must do everything in our power to change Congress.

  2. GEORGE BAILEY NEVER EXISTED

    How many do not remember that most wonderful movie “It’s A Wonderful Life” which is shown around Christmas every year? To me it seems to be shown less and less as the years go by. This Frank Capra directed movie starring Jimmy Stewart (George Bailey), Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore(Mr. Potter) and Henry Travers (Clarence the Angel) is the perfect metaphor for what has happened to our country. In a nutshell Mr. Potter wants to buy out Mr. Bailey’s small savings and loan and suddenly one day George’s Uncle Billy misplaces $8000.00 (Can you believe 8K when we now we talk in the Trillions?) . This causes a run on the bank and Mt. Potter a chance to get the bank. Poor George has a weak moment and tries to commit suicide by jumping in the river . Clarence the Angel comes to the rescue. George tells Clarence he wished he had never been born. Clarence grants him this wish and the scene becomes one of a total nightmare. What was once a clean innocent city has turned into a sleazy, noisy, drunken and debauched city. The name has been changed to Pottersville(USURPERVILLE) from the original Bedford Falls. Needless to say George realizes his importance to life and a good teary ending.
    Looking around at all the mess this country is in I would have to come to the conclusion that what we are witnessing is “The George Bailey Never Existed” version.

  5. The content of your character shows in this article and it is good. Thank you, Mr. Wells, for reminding us what is really important about this American Tragedy.

    It is not the labels that politicians put on their idealogies that count. It is the people who have lost so much because of the treachery of this regime. People like Kindra Arnesen, Gregg Hall, Larry Wells whose lives have been destroyed by the regime; the one that the bp exec referred to as the “little people”; the fishermen whose whole way of life has been destroyed; the car dealers and their employees who are now out of work; and our children who may not have the opportunities that we have had are the ones that count.

    My husband lost his job and we suffered a great deal but we believe in this country and our own ingenuity and we have continued on , found new paths – this movie Its a Wonderful Life was our life last year and many many wonderful people helped us get through a tough time – thank you for your well analogied
    piece Mr Wells – its is the people who will triumph as long as they do not forget it is up to each of us to make our future great – not the government .

  7. I hate to be cynical but I have seen too many politicians corrupted by the system to believe that there will be any change in Washington in November when we change the labels of the politicians in Washington from D to R. The labels don’t matter, most are bought and paid for by the lobbyists. Even if they go to congress pure, most are corrupted by the system. Yes, there are a precious few would remain uncorrupted by not enough to matter.

    When We the People realize our power, then we can begin to take our Country back.

  13. Found this at Andy Martin’s site, this is part of what he had to say about Obama being a Muslim.

    During the 2008 presidential campaign I called Barack Obama the “World’s Greatest Entertainer.” I viewed Obama’s campaign trope as nothing more than skillfully presented entertainment. Americans were frustrated and disappointed with George Bush and the Republicans, as they had every right to be; voters were looking for some diversion from the mess the Bush years had created in Washington. Obama was the perfect entertainer. He diverted and channeled our disappointments into his own political pocket.

    Obama’s nightclub act was pure painlessness. He told us “we” were the solution. “Hope,” “change” and reform without any cost, without any sacrifice, without any consequences.

    People were offended when I called Obama an “entertainer” but his bag of political tricks was nothing more than entertainment. Lots of actors play doctors on TV; I wouldn’t count on them to perform surgery in a real hospital. People were desperate to believe in “Dr. Hope and Change.” They confused “acting” with “leading.”

    By elevating “hope” and “change” over reality, they elected Obama, someone who portrayed a doctor, to actually “practice” medicine to cure what ailed America. The result is the disaster we face today.

  14. http://newsflavor.com/politics/world-politics/white-house-insider-obama-battling-severe-depression/#ixzz11OoyR9kX

    President Obama is emotionally shutting down. He is a terribly depressed man.

    And why do you think this is happening? Well for one, he was completely unprepared for the job of being President of the United States. The demands on one’s time, the emotional and physical toll, are considerable. Second, the failure of the administration to effectively communicate to the American people.

    There are staff increasingly dissatisfied with this president. When that happens, word starts to get out.

    I have been quite accurate on my previous discussions with you. I indicated there would be a mass exodus of staff from the White House days and even weeks prior to those leaving became public. Larry, David, Rahm, and more have or are in the process of leaving. Your readers need only check the dates of when you published with the public announcements of those departures to confirm that fact. I have been very truthful. I indicated Pelosi was under intense pressure and challenge from within her own party. That has also proven to be accurate. What I have told you to date has been the very thing that has developed surrounding the White House – and what I am telling you now is also just as accurate.

    What I mean specifically is medication. Is the president receiving medication for his depression? (Long pause) I believe…yes, I believe he is. I believe he has been for some time actually. As to something more specific, I do not know. Nor do I care to say.

    There is your headline right there. Hillary Clinton is either going to run against Barack Obama in 2012 or run with Barack Obama in 2012. Those are the only two options she is considering at this point, and the Obama White House is -expletive- itself over the possibility she chooses to run against him. And let me just add this last point. The Obama White House doesn’t give a rats ass about “tearing the party apart” as you put it. They only care about securing Obama as president. Too many have invested

    too much in having him in there to further an agenda that has been planned for too long. Hillary would be far less easy to manipulate and control than Obama. With Obama it’s not so much about politics as it is about ideology. It is a battle that is being waged right now within the Democratic Party. And a brutal battle is has been. It’s going to get worse too. Much worse.

  17. Thank you CW, for a great article.

  18. I am not sure that the fiasco in DC is something that Mr.Smith would have taken to without presenting his own general filibuster. We see the variuos by products of Congressional,Judicial,and Executive criminal activity,and it leaves a severe pain inside of me. This is why I sometimes explode in anger, and unwittingly use invective while all the time I know that doing so is only an excercise in futility. Sometimes it is impossible to restrain ourselves. I have watched as has all seniors, while the trust (which no longer exists anyway) was methodically milked,and/or robbed by the alleged representatives who we sent to Washington to protect our interests,not steal from us. I promise that I will not kick off until I have cast my votes in both November,and again in 2012. My vote alone means nothing upon the sea of corruption, but you can be very sure that when compounded by the votes of ALL the seniors will carry the same authority as an M1 rifle. You can be sure that all seniors are going to be carrying their weapons to the voting places. It won’t be a RIFLE per se,but it will be our intellect,and the mobility of at least ONE HAND to which will be attached a “TRIGGER FINGER”which will PRESS THE BUTTON OF “POLITICAL DEMISE”.! EVERY BIT AS EFFECTIVE AS A RIFLE. HOPEFULLY BETWEEN THE COMING POLITICAL ATTRITION IN NOVEMBER,AND THE FINAL STRIKE IN 2012WE WILL HOPEFULLY RID OURSELVES OF THE PREVAILING INSANITY IN DC. SOMEHOW THOUGH I HAVE A GUT FEELING THAT IT MIGHT TAKE DECADES TO FIX UP WHAT THE POLITICAL MORONS HAVE TRIED TO DESTROY.

  19. oldsalt79 | October 4, 2010 at 10:56 am |

    If We the People want our Country back, we will have to take it back one County, one State at a time through the Grand Jury process. That is the only way to rid the government of crooked politicians. Even if the new batch of politicians goes in pure, they will soon be corrupted by the system. Look at joe scarborough, he went to congress as a conservative republican now he is a liberal.

  22. Free Speech………………………….
    No matter what we do there is no ABSOLUTE GUARANTEE to ANYTHING. We simply try to do what we perceive will work best and go from there. I agree that people are people and if tempted in the right way will often change sides. These are NOT the sort of people we need in DC,or in our military services either.

  23. Good article Citizen Wells and a brilliant point about our ancestors not being free. Black leaders (here in the UK too) like to pretent their constiuency have a monopoly on the “We were not free” argument but only 200 years ago most British and Europeant people were not free either. Slavery did not exist by that name in Europe but laws similar to Britain’s Master and Servant act bound an employee to a boss yet gave the boss freedom to dismiss that employee without notice, without giving a reason and without compensation. Poor and even moderately well offn people did not have the right to vote and in the courts the word of a ‘gentleman’ was proof enough on which to convict. People were born to a place in society and could not rise in the social hierarchy in any circumstances. It was possible to descend but only if found guilty of dishonourable conduct.

    And of course the power of the monarch and the church were unquestionable.

    One can only admire the bravery of the early settlers who left Europe and undertook a hazardous sea voyage to seek new lives in America, Canada or Australia and equally those who stayed and fought to change the system in their homeland.

    Yes, Mr. Smith speaks for what those people believed in and struggled for.

  24. CW………………………………
    Have you ever thought of taking the role of Mr.Smith, and throwing your hat in the basket,for Congress.? Who knows where intellectual capacity,and honesty will take you these days.

  25. I often agonize over the choices made by family members and friends when they support Barack Obama and his minions. I cried myself to sleep on election night because I envisioned the destruction his administration would bestow on our nation. My heart cried out, “God, where are you? Have you abandoned us? Why were the people deceived by this fraud, this author of lies?”

    It was revealed to me over time that many people are able to recognize deceptions and yet many are fooled. It’s all about discernment. And I now realize that discernment is a gift and not everyone has it. (I Cor 12)
    Many of you at Citizen Wells are gifted with the ability to discern truth from lies.

    Our nation has been luke warm but God calls those of faith to be either hot or cold or he will spit us out. (Rev 3) That is what is happening in America today. People of faith have awakened and have become hot with righteous anger because our homeland and our sanctity are being desecrated.

    In the past, the news was fed to us by the biased media and we had no other choice of sustenance. But now deliverance has been given to us through the internet and the blogosphere. And many of us come to Citizen Wells and other like minded sites for daily sustenance of truth, to share and learn from other discerned patriots. Those who frequent here, labor and lament the tribulations our nation is experiencing.

    Thank you , Mr. Wells, for all you do to keep our hopes alive. Through God’s mercy, someday soon, very soon I hope and pray, we will all have our lives back and our nation will be restored.

  27. White House Insider: Obama Suffering From Severe Depression

    Obama’s puppet masters were only too eager to push this empty suit to the top. They lusted so desperately to steal America by means of usurpation, they never considered the puppet might not be strong enough to hold up under the fantastic pressures for a full four years. Ha! So now he is crumbling! Ha, Ha.

    All they will do is pump him up with more cocaine to prop him up until they find a suitable new world order replacement. In the mean time, we the people need to grow hay while the sun shines. Run to the polls and vote out every incumbent, democrat, and idiot who thinks it is fashionable to be a Progressive!

  28. loaves&fishes…………………………
    Often we face an adverse situation in our lives in which we find ourselves struck down in such a way that we question whether we should even get back up at all. Facing physical, and mental pain sometimes probes us to our very souls. I was a person so struck. But somehow over a long period of time I did manage to crawl back to a standing position. I beleive that there was a reason why I did but I don’t question it. Today I am 79 years of age with a few infirmities but am still going strong. There was indeed a light at the end of the tunnel. I thank God for placing it there.

  31. For a long time I thought the Sword of Damocles was hanging over Obama’s head, now I believe it is hanging over every politician in DC-due to there is no trust remaining by WE THE PEOPLE.
    Obama is clinically depressed? after 2 years and they would even consider running him in 12? Are they insane?
    As a recent ex-Dem now Tea Party due to Obama and the election fraud 08, if they want to save the Democrat party-let them lose big time-as expected and hoped for by a majority of the citizens. All concerned did a terrible job, they have earned this tsunami by their incompetent and corrupt, imbecilic so-called governing style. Any “good” Democrat (I don’t see too many) if they are any good can make another attempt to get elected at a future date.
    In the long run I think the Tea Party (due to no real party affiliation but more to the right, stressing fiscal responsibility) looks to the country what is best for the country and the people, most Dems and some Reps look to the party and what is best for them. Selfish as opposed to selfless.
    Obama started out propped up by the media with all the fake popularity garbage, and he continues to be propped up-for sanity’s and our countries sake that should end. This week would be good.

    Have you ever wondered how a tethered watchdog must feel when he runs at something that he perceives as a threat, but just shy of his target the chain suddenly brings him to a abrupt halt. I wonder if a little “CHAIN FEAR” is what the SO called POLITICIANS depend upon because they know that until the chain restraint is broken ,or otherwise taken off the watchdog, he cannot bite anybody,except those who FOOLISHLY VENTURE TOO CLOSE TO HIM TO BEGIN WITH. HE KNOWS EXACTLY WHERE THAT RESTRAINT IS GOING TO SNAP TAUGHT AND SET HIM ON HIS BACKSIDE. What a pleasant surprise for the watchdog when one day he runs to the end of the chain and discovers that sombody has LENGTHENED THE CHAIN BY A FEW FEET. Sad day for the crook, or crooked politician..

    This is actually going to be a lot of fun, folks, because Rahm Emanuel thinks he is beloved in Chicago and the city is just going to hand him the Mayor’s office after all the people he’s stepped on, screamed at, belittled, and terrorized through the years.
    We have an inside source in his nascent campaign who describes the attitude of the staff Emanuel already has as “delusional”.
    We also happen to know people working on some of the other Mayoral campaigns, so we’re going to get a lot of inside scoop on all of this…and will try to go to as many of Emanuel’s events as possible to report live from the ground on how crazy he is, and how stupid the national media is for declaring Emanuel to be the next Mayor.
    Chicagoans don’t like or want him.
    His abrasive, toxic, and emotionally unbalanced personality is not what this city needs. And people know that.
    Though, honestly, he’s pretty much going to do that himself, just by being Rahm Emanuel.
    It’s going to get really fun, though…especially since the Mayoral election is February 22nd…and the Blagojevich trial begins again in January…and if Blago is the Blago we all know and love, this time he’s going to call Emanuel to the stand…so there’s a very real possibility that Emanuel could be a material witness in a corruption trial asked about his own dirty dealings while trying to become Mayor of Chicago.
    How fun will THAT be to watch?

    evil was advancing by leaps and bounds.

    May we have the strength, unity and perseverance to do what it is going to take to restore this country. We know this fight is not going to be a sprint, but rather a long-term race that will require much patience and fortitude. May God grant us those attributes!

    There’s a great comparison between the number of people who turned up for the Glenn Beck Restoring Honor rally in August and the crowd Democrats achieved by busing in union members and embracing Communists and Socialists, who turned up in strong numbers with their posters and signs heralding the Democrats’ strong embrace of Leftism.
    Since everyone who came to the Glenn Beck rally was unpaid, and it cost quite a bit to go to this, and everyone covered their own costs, those two images should send chills of terror down the backs of everyone at the DNC. Their union muscle is dwarfed by the hardworking and patriotic Americans who are standing up to them.

    “I think it is the greatest threat to academic freedom in our lifetime,” former Sen. Bill Armstrong, now president of Colorado Christian University, told WND. “But only if you love liberty.”
    (snip)
    “Armstrong is so alarmed over the proposal identified by the federal agency as a rule change regarding “Program Integrity Issues” that he’s joined with another former Colorado senator and higher education leader, Hank Brown, in writing a commentary on the subject. Brown was president of the University of Northern Colorado and the University of Colorado.”
    “The educators were joined by prominent columnists Cal Thomas and Jay Ambrose in alerting readers about the proposal.”
    “Armstrong is encouraging members of Congress to look into the measure, since as a proposed “regulation” change, most lawmakers probably haven’t even heard of it.”

    Obama’s puppet masters were only too eager to push this empty suit to the top. They lusted so desperately to steal America by means of usurpation, they never considered the puppet might not be strong enough to hold up under the fantastic pressures for a full four years. Ha! So now he is crumbling! Ha, Ha.

    All they will do is pump him up with more cocaine to prop him up until they find a suitable new world order replacement. In the mean time, we the people need to grow hay while the sun shines. Run to the polls and vote out every incumbent, democrat, and idiot who thinks it is fashionable to be a Progressive!
    =========================================
    bo’s puppet masters should have adminstered a psychiatric evaluation and drug test on bo and they would have understood that a Psychotic Cocaine Addict would not be able to function as POTUS.

  50. SCOTUS didn’t waste any time on the 1st Smackdown of bo and his muslim TERRORIST Pals.

    High Court Says No to Gitmo Lawyers
    October 4, 2010 – 10:04 AM | by: Lee Ross
    The Supreme Court announced Monday it will not hear arguments about the federal government’s ability to keep under wraps details of a controversial warrant less surveillance program.

    The decision is certain to be welcome news to intelligence officers and perhaps Bush Administration officials who put the Terrorist Surveillance Program into effect following the Sept. 11 attacks.

    The lawyers wanted to force open paperwork to determine if the government used the TSP to monitor their communication with their clients at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp. The lawyers, who were all granted security clearances and not considered threats, have been thwarted in their efforts to find out if their communications were tapped by federal authorities.

Had this been done in bo’s case, the World would be a much better place now and bo would be locked up in an institution for the criminally insane right now.

    At this point bo is prima facie GUILTY of CRIMINAL NEGLIGENT HOMICIDE for knowingly ordering the POISONING of the Gulf by the US Air Force. I don’t doubt that bo’s intent was to murder residents of the Gulf States, but to prove murder one or conspiracy to commit murder, investigators with have to get the testimony of one or more of bo’s co-conspirators who want to avoid lengthy prison sentences. Considering murder and treason carry the death penalty, I am confidant that there will soon be a plethora of co-conspirators who are eager to testify against bo in exchange for a lighter sentence.

  74. Muslim Goals to Infiltrate and Destroy the U.S.

    Much like the “Communist Goals for U.S.A. Takeover” that were written
    January 10, 1963, the Muslim Brotherhood also developed their own strategic goals or Master Plan in 1991 for their cultural invasion of the United States and their intention to turn the U.S. into a Muslim nation.

    After reading the Communist Goals and then these developed by the Muslim Brotherhood, we notice their many similarities……

  78. Of course, they were not really paying attention. They were lulled into a false sense of security. Many were fooled by a promise of change, a sense of a better world, a better life, not unlike the surreal world that played out for the German people in the early 1930′s.
    ===========================================

    CW you have nailed it. I think that this is a very important point. It is also happening in Australia.

    There is that false sense of security. In our case we also have people who just want the govt to give them money for nothing.

    The comparison to Germany of the 1930s is a very good one.

    Abraham Lincoln: “We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.

    ========================================

    You DO realize, don’t you and Lincoln was THE ONE who inverted that concept and made it NOT TRUE!, don’t you? He also said he didn’t give a fig for the slaves one way or another, compared to preserving the Union (i.e. of oppression of the government over the people).

    Have you actually studied history, or do you just print random irrelevant quotes?

  80. While I agree that bo’s Democrat/Socialist regime is FASCIST like hitler’s National Socialist (NAZI) regime, hitler was extremely popular among the German People because he revived the German Economy. In that economic sense, bo is vastly different from hitler. bo has destroyed the US Economy and that is the primary reason why bo is hated by the American People.

    http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/world/europe/de-drittes-reich-economy.htm

    Hitler achieved notable economic and diplomatic successes during the first five years of his rule. Hitler substantially revived the economy. Unemployment, so pivotal in bringing him to power, had dropped from 6 million to less than 1 million between 1933 and 1937, this at a time when the US was still wallowing in the Depression. National production and income doubled during the same period. This was partly owing to Hitler’s rearmament policy, but also to more benign forms of public spending. The world’s first major highway system, the autobahns, began snaking across the country, and there was talk of providing every citizen with a cheap, standardized car, the people’s car, or Volkswagen.

    Indeed, and who was the SINGLE MOST PERSON responsible for this INVERSION? You used a passive phrase “has become”. There is noting passive about it. A great national war was fought over it and this concept was FORCED up the azzes of the people like Vlad’s impaling stakes.

    To all you PUMAs out there – do you love Hillary enough to vote for an Obama/Clinton ticket in 2012? Especially if that might put her on a roller coaster for a 2016 shoe-in?

    (Which, after all, is the only reason they would put her on the ticket. So is this a good move for them, or do they overestimate their own cleverness?)

Is someone taking terrific chances with this guy Obama-such as a complete psychotic breakdown on national TV, in public-I don’t think that could be controlled by medication which can exacerbate or heighten the conditions-this pressure he’s feeling real/imagined-maybe he fell for the fake popularity in 08, and can’t understand why he is so unpopular now. He may be getting pressure from lots of other sources too-that or his guilty conscience has driven over the brink.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychotic_break
    A psychotic break is a term used to describe the first time that a person experiences an episode of primary psychosis. Many different kinds of psychoactive drugs are known to cause psychotic breaks. Examples are LSD, dextromethorphan (in higher doses), PCP, and opiates (mainly from experiencing withdrawal symptoms), though many other things can cause temporary psychosis. Symptoms of psychotic breaks vary greatly, usually depending on the circumstances of diagnosis or any contributary substance ingested. Symptoms can range from harmless, sometimes unnoticed delusions, to violent outbursts and major depression.

    Your oft-repeated posts about how much at least the Conservative Judges hate Zero is consistent with this. I believe they hate him enough to hear as many cases as they can like this and smack him down to size.

    But I remain unconvinced that they will go so far as to hear THE CASE.

  92. an interesting point was made about indentured servants. The British system had the poor work houses up until the 20th century. The rise of soft British socialism was a reaction to those living conditions. The children of the poor were not receiving an education… and so on.

    Many escaped from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales by taking on being an indentured servant. It was their means of obtaining a passage to the New World. They had to work for a time for that master until their debt was paid.

    Apprenticeship was a type of indentured servitude as well. This is also true for teachers in training, especially in Australia up until about 1973. The students agreed to take on a bond that they would teach for x years in repayment for the govt (state govts) paying for their training.

    However, there was another kind of slavery which did not end until the 1850s in Australia – the convict transported to the New World, first to USA and then to Australia. I am descended from an Irish convict who ended up in Hobartville (Hobart), Van Dieman’s Land (Tasmania). When she arrived she was assigned to a soldier as a servant, and she became his wife. Her records showed that she was punished for having a ring on her finger, and then punished when she gave birth to her first daughter, as well as being punished because she accompanied her husband into Victoria and finally she got her ticket of freedom.

    Although bo has abundant reasons to be extremely depressed in that his entire DELUSIONAL WORLD is crumbling and several White House insiders have leaked that they think bo is depressed, I would not say that bo’s primary diagnosis is depression. Many Mental Health Professionals have stated that bo is a Psychotic Narcissist. I would defer to the Mental Health Professionals but I don’t think there is any medication to treat someone with NPD. Nor do I think that bo can be rehabilitated. The best place for bo is a prison cell so that he would no longer pose a threat of serious bodily harm to harm to the World’s Population.

Other than the vague “I want to follow the constitution”, this is the most important, most urgent, and strongest litmus test of a Patriot. That is because the CONSTITUTION HAS NEVER BEEN CHANGED OR AMENDED. Our current election process is one of those piles of cr-p that the USSC found under a mushroom under a shadow under a penumbra of the constitution. It totally violates the clear intent of the constitution. And leads DIRECTLY to Mob Rule.

    You want lot’s more Obamas? Then by all means, lets have a popular vote!

    Sure you want to vote yourself, you have been falsely trained that it is your right. But first of all you need to know that is wrong. Secondly and even more importantly, for every “good hearted” and “well intended” and even “wise” YOU that is allowed to vote in this way, it lets in about 10 of the clueless idiots to vote also. More than negating YOUR vote!

    It is not a price I am willing to pay. And neither were the founders.

You already lost dozens of good and valuable “disciples” and you are closer than you know to losing a lot more – your very best. We are fed up and we are not going to put up with it any more.

    Please ban FREE SPEECH for life. He has far over burnt and pizzed away any hero points he may have accumulated. He is now simply disrupting and spreading false information and malicious lies. EVERY SINGLE TIME HE HAS PROMOTED ANYTHING, and the facts then became available, he has been wrong. He continues to post provably wrong things on several different topics.

    Even the other day when PAXSON challenged him to adopt a more civilized approach, he refused. He said his main mission here was to RIDICULE. That is his own statement, sir.

    [jbjd]
    …why have a eligibility for POTUS requirement if their really is no Federal way to investigate and enforce such claims? Clearly, the seperation (sic) of powers would prevent the Executive Branch from vetting itself. Therefore, the legislative branch must have the sole power to investigate such a claim. However, the SCOTUS is mandated with primary jurisdiction over officers and diplomats…
    *************************************************
    You miss the point I have been making for more than 2 (two) years now. If the Legislative Branch (state legislature) enacts a law saying, only candidates eligible for office can get their names on the ballot; and the Executive Branch (SoS) promulgates a rule saying s/he will check, which rule includes a listing of documentary evidence to show eligibility then, s/he is not saying, anyone without these documents is ineligible for office but rather, the candidate is ineligible to get on the ballot. Obviously, any candidate aggrieved by such decision would pursue all administrative (Executive Branch) remedies and then hit the courts (Judicial Branch). Let the candidate argue, qualifying for the ballot is the SAME as qualifying for office, and the SoS has no right to exclude a candidate for President based on his or her interpretation of qualifications. But remember, that won’t be enough; because in this case, the Claimant (the candidate) cannot establish, any definition is false. Whereas the Respondent (SoS) can establish by a preponderance of the evidence, s/he had a rational basis for defining qualifications in the way s/he did.

    I am not presenting a legal treatise here but, the only way to obtain a definition of NBC that is legally binding on filling the office of President as opposed to just getting on the ballot; must come from an election related law spelling out what is meant by NBC. And this law will define terms with respect either to who gets on the ballot; or how state Electors may cast their votes. (‘You may only cast votes for a President who is Constitutionally qualified for the job.’)

  104. Citizen Carlyle (FUBO)

    Who do you trust?

    Here is an interesting discussion topic. There are precious few facts and there is no known answers. Therefore everybody’s well-reasoned opinions ought to be valuable.

    I posted an important piece yesterday about the House Of Cards that is the national and world economic situation. What if THIS were THE BIG THING? Not NWO, no evil jew bankers, not the federal reserve, not race riots, no dirty b-mb hidden under Chicago, etc. etc. – just ONE thing – the economy.

    The nation and the world is used to a certain amount of turnover in staff and cabinet ministers, and all that. But as I have also written about, for the last 200 years, “succession” has been the single-most prevalent and devastating cause of wars. More particularly a broken or messy succession.

    So, the first discussion question is: How important is the stability of the Head Of State to the Nation’s economy, and the World’s economy? Before you answer, please remember that none of the currencies of the civilized nations has ANY VALUE AT ALL. It is all FIAT money. It is barely worth the paper it is printed on, literally. How much of a trigger would you need to start an avalanche? A death spiral of devaluation?

    Now, who do you really trust that knows anything about money or economy? Paul Ryan? Jim DeMint? Choose your own favorite. Now suppose we could arrange a private meeting with just you and them. And you could discuss the economy and the stability of the Head Of State. This raises a couple more very interesting questions.

    Is there anything at all – say along the lines of the next level of detail below what I reported – that would make you say, “OMG, we better not touch Zero, constitutionally legal or not”.

    Then, being sworn to secrecy, because such devastating knowledge could not be widely shared, what exactly would you come back and report to us? And ask us to do?

    Happy thinking. Hope your heads don’t explode!

    ======================================

    Again, my major complaint with your essays is that you single out A solution as THE solution. Clearly what you have written is correct and a desirable thing to do. It is something we ought to do to, if nothing else, clarify and tighten up, and streamline, The System.

    But that is not the ONLY solution. The other one clearly and inarguably being to get the elected officials to uphold their oaths to the constitution. And if you tell me that is not sufficient, I will tell you then that it is meaningless oath. And OATH must, MUST, contain it’s own enforcement. A RIGHT and a DUTY to enforcement. Otherwise you might as well be swearing an oath on a fish to send back news of heaven or hell when you get there.

    ============================================

    Anything that cause bo to imagine that he is being physically threatened could cause be to have a psychotic break. Major stressors for bo would be anything that reminded him of being raped by his Grandfather or by Frank Marshall Davis. The stressor could be a sound, a smell or a scene that would cause a PTSD episode. bo has a very fragile mind. At this point, there is nothing that can be done to prevent bo’s psychotic breakdown. To prevent bo from causing further harm to others, bo should be put in a controlled environment.

  107. I think in some of the photos of bo he looks like he isn’t right in the head. I think he is psychotic. He should step down and allow us to have a sane person lead our country. All that nut job does is campaign, commit a lot of crimes agains our people and the country. He has to go. Insanity is unacceptable.

    Michelle, interesting video. Megyn does a really good job on this case. Gloria Allred is making a real fool of herself over this matter.

    Meg Whitman has the documentation that proves the woman was willing to do those other duties.

    Also Allred does not address the fact that the woman committed perjury when she signed her own documents with the employment agency.

  109. Free Speech @ 5:45 pm | I would not want a possible psychotic breakdown scene to happen publicly-it is just the most horrible thing. When a person is that ill, it is the responsibility of others to see that person receives the care that they need, and be separated quickly from others who they may harm (further).
    The Florida Mental Health Act of 1971 (commonly known as the “Baker Act”) is a Florida statute allowing for involuntary examination of an individual.
    The Baker Act allows for involuntary examination (what some call emergency or involuntary commitment). It can be initiated by judges, law enforcement officials, physicians or mental health professionals. There must be evidence that the person
    has a mental illness (as defined in the Baker Act) and
    is a harm to self, harm to others, or self neglectful (as defined in the Baker Act).
    Examinations may last up to 72 hours and occur in over 100 Florida Department of Children and Families-designated receiving facilities statewide.
    There are many possible outcomes following examination of the patient. This includes the release of the individual to the community (or other community placement), a petition for involuntary inpatient placement (what some call civil commitment), involuntary outpatient placement (what some call outpatient commitment or assisted treatment orders), or voluntary treatment (if the person is competent to consent to voluntary treatment and consents to voluntary treatment). The involuntary outpatient placement language in the Baker Act took effect in 2005.

    CITIZEN WELLS, SIR
    *******************************
    My assessment is that it isn’t just the spreading of false information, because any of us could be guilty of the same unwittingly. The main problem is the lack of sensitivity for other posters’ feelings – the blatant, consistent attack upon those who might dare to disagree. It’s an attitude problem – some sort of complex that keeps this one from behaving in a normal, civil manner towards others. In reading the weak apology yesterday, I was for a brief moment encouraged. Then immediately, in the same breath there was a return to scathing, name-calling. This is painful and uncalled for.

    If you notice the “insider” was refusing to answer about medication that Øbama might be using, but hinted that he or she would not go into the “extra” medication.

    We do know that Øbama is or was a drug user, which was probably cocaine, or some other version of cocaine such as Ice.

    A lot of people do not recognize that the use of Ice can and does lead to mental break-down. I have come across many individuals recovering from this kind of break-down. Many of them have ended up, prior to taking action that leads to recovery, being delusional, and ending up in hospital. Some of these have had shock treatment (in Australia they still give shock treatment).

    For a while I have heard of the rumours that Bo was doing drugs again and tha he was using inside the White House. If this is happening then there is a chance that this drug use is causing him to become more and more delusional.

    Also, his use of drugs such as heroin could have caused liver damage. This might explain why he got a warning from the doctor about alcohol consumption.

    =====================================

    bo first started smoking crack cocaine as a teenager when he was dealing crack with Frank Marshall Davis is Hawaii.

    I have heard from several professionals in mental health and law enforcement that crack cocaine use causes paranoia which would explain bo’s recent attempts to try and portray himself a a persecuted victim. “They talk about me like I am a dog.” This is also indicative that bo is suffering from NPD. See the Charles Manson video above.

    bo’s Total Mental Breakdown recorded in Public is probably necessary for his Delusional followers to face the Reality that bo is severely mentally ill.

    As I stated, I have had experiences with recovering addicts (not in a bad way). They talked about the paranoia and the delusions.

    Sometimes they know when they are about to go into a break-down. I remember one female who had herself admitted to hospital because she was sliding down that path.

    Whilst I do not see Øbama as one who has gone as far as Charles Manson, I do see many of the similarities, especially in terms of his thin skin, and in terms of his obvious narcissism.

    I am also wondering if MooMoo has been a user. There seems to be a large number of users of cocaine in that circle.

    ======================================
    Admittedly, bo is strikenly similar to Charles Manson, in that, they bought used their followers to harm others. It is that similarity to Manson that probably attracted bill ayers to bo. Remember what ayers admired about manson was that manson wanted to start a race war and cause millions to be murdered. ayers long time dream was to see millions of Americans murdered.

  125. Free Speech | October 4, 2010 at 6:59 pm |

    I was quite young when the Tate-LaBianca murders took place. I would have been at high school because from memory the Manson gang got off over the Beatles song “Helter Skelter” and a few others on the White Album. As a side note, when my American cousin John came to Australia on R and R, and he traveled to Melbourne to meet us and stay with us, he bought us a copy of the Beatles White Album. So yes, I can date this to my teenage years as well as the anti-Vietnam war era.

    It is hard to imagine that the blonde who was on Petticoat Junction was cut down in such a brutal murder.

    Yes, I do remember some details about the Weather Underground, as well as the Californian SLA who had kidnapped the heiress Patricia Hearst.

    Many of us do not know exactly how evil William Ayers and Bernadine Dorhn were, even if we knew about them blowing up buildings and committing acts of terror.

    I have no doubt that Ayers conveyed these ideas to Øbama and that it has been the goal of Ayers that he would become the puppet master controlling such outcomes.

    However, there is an equally sinister puppet master, one who actually participated in helping to round up Jews to send them to the gas chambers in those concentration camps – George Soros. He came from a Jewish family, but they were turncoats, because they changed their name to escape detection. On top of that Soros happily participated with the Nazis in rounding up his own people. The man is really evil.

    With these kind of influences over Øbama it is not hard to imagine that Øbama has similar goals.

    There is another evil character, a Russian. His name is Brzenzki (sp). I suspect that he is a KGB agent but he has been around academia for a long time and he has now served in 2 Administrations.

    Maybe, maybe not. That is a tough one to call.

    Clearly if that had happened in the Primarys that would have been ideal. However, now that he is this far, I have written before about the extreme importance of nothing, NOTHING happening to Zero now. His disciples would go nuts and he would become a martyr and a god. Maybe riots also, but I am more worried about the”worship” aspect.

    You can be sure that the Lunatic Liberals will find SOME way to pin the blame on all Patriots – for having “driven him to it”. “No president has ever been so persistently HARASSED! No president has had a greater number of DEATH THREATS!”.

    From Charlie Daniel’s, Bob Strauss…The idiot can’t jam!!

    After being in the music business for 52 years it’s just about all I know; anything at all about–and in keeping with my admittedly narrow knowledge–I would like to draw an analogy concerning the Obama administration, viewing things from my vantage point.
    Ok, let’s say you pick out the finest symphony conductor in the world, add the greatest singer and seven or so of the finest classical musicians on the planet. You get them together backstage and say,
    “Alright, there are twenty thousand fans out front, standing room only, expectations are off the charts, they are looking for the best show they’ve ever seen.
    Now the curtain goes up in five minutes, the sound has been checked out, the lights set and everything is perfect, the stage is set for the greatest show the world has ever seen.
    Now get there and knock ’em out guys! They’re all with you; you’re all superstars in their eyes. Go show ’em how it’s done. Oh, there’s only been one change…
    Tonight you have to do your show playing songs you’ve never played and you’ll have to improvise. There’s no sheet music. You’ll just have to jam.”

    Can you imagine the panic backstage? You see, some of the very finest musicians on earth can’t jam a lick. I remember a few years ago when I had a couple of young fiddle players come on stage with me and play “The South’s Gonna Do It Again.”
    They had learned the parts I’d played on the record, arrangement, lead lines and all and played it perfectly note for note. Everything was going swimmingly until I decided to leave the arrangement and jam for a while.

    When I turned to one of them and told them to take a solo the kid was as lost as a baby sheep in a hale storm. They had no more idea about improvising than they did about how to build a spaceship. “The South’s Gonna Do It Again” is a simple twelve bar blues song that any musician from any garage band would be able to take a solo on, but even though these kids were extremely talented and played what they knew perfectly, when it came to jammin, they were totally lost.
    They had just never learned to do it.

    To me the presidency is kind of like jammin’. You have to roll with the flow, improvise, adapt to the moment, pick up on what’s going on and deal with it.

    Our president has never had to jam, he’s always had the sheet music in front of him and he’s never had to play a note somebody else had not written for him. One of the biggest mistakes President Obama made when he came in office was to surround himself with a bunch of players who had never jammed either. None of them have ever had any practical experience in the real world.

    In essence, they are a bunch of paper tigers, they do an incredible job of spending other people’s money and sneaking legislation through the back door, but out in the real world, where there are no scripts, down where the rubber meets the road there is probably not a person in the bunch who could change a flat tire, much less deal with the complex problems America faces.

    The only thing Obama has done with any problem that has arisen is to throw money at it, and in truth, that’s sadly all he knows how to do. When it comes to dealing with things that money alone won’t fix like busted oil pipes at the bottom of the ocean or solving the problems on our southern borders he’s lost and all those around him are lost.

    The Obama cabinet is the most inept bunch imaginable. When people have only viewed the world from the top of an ivory tower they don’t react very well when it’s time to get their hands dirty.

    Obama’s people can’t even accept real world concepts of the dangerous situations we’re dealing with. Eric Holder wanting to try terrorists in civilian courts, in New York City of all places is nothing less than naive arrogance. Janet Napolitano’s gross inexperience in dealing with security matters is going to end up costing this country dearly. Putting an unqualified person who has never even been a judge on the bench of the highest court in the land, for nothing more than her political leanings is insanity

    Everywhere you look you see eggheads with nothing more than a college degree to qualify them for the sensitive jobs they hold. I’m just wondering how long it will take for a majority of the people in this country to realize that the wheel that steers the direction of this nation is in the hands of people who have no idea how to get from point a to point b without a roadmap and that roadmap just doesn’t exist. Every trip is different.

    I see disaster looming on the not too distant horizon, financial disaster, increasing danger from terrorist attack, unabated violence in the streets and an arrogant and unmanageable illegal alien population.

    It’s coming folks and Obama and the band are still in the dressing room looking for the sheet music. THEY JUST CAN’T JAM! What do you think? Pray for our troops, and for our country God Bless America

    ****************************************
    This is the crux of the problem. The Constitution defines eligibility but does not mandate that Electors only vote for an eligible President. People are trying to enforce a qualification without a corresponding mandate. That’s why citizens must create such a mandate by amending our laws and demanding enforcement.

    Keep an eye open for someplace we could move to.”

    ==============================================
    What’s with this
    “we”

    business?

    Got a mooselim in your pocket, oc?

    BTAIMB, I think that is an EXCELLENT idea that you move along. I ain’t going nowhere else, unlike some obots, I, Free Speech, have never even been put in moderation.

    IMHO, CW is the BEST BLOG ON THE WWW

    I get annoyed by all the PERSONAL ATTACKS and long DISINFORMATION NONSENSE POSTS but I cherish the FREEDOM OF SPEECH!

    Do you see, Mr. Wells? Totally ignores your ROEs and the expertise and sensibilities of your other blog denizens. MORE RIDICULE. He stated in his own words that his MISSION was to ridicule. Besides 90% of what he says is lies and the other 10% is poorly vetted and poorly researched.

    How can you not understand this as an existential poisoning of your once-great blog? Not only does he pizz on US, but by flaunting your rules, he PIZZES ON YOUR FACE!

    Again, you focus on a single outcome, and thereby miss a key point. If elections were conducted ACCORDING TO THE CONSTITUTION and only wise elders selected the president, then they would OBVIOUSLY consider such things. It is only when the MORONS and RABBLE are allowed to vote for president that we get crap like this.

    Let’s ALL be Patriotic and PUSH for CONSTITUTIONAL voting process.

    Yo, Dear Hearts and Honest Seekers –
    Maybe we need to find a better blog. I’m just getting tired of the ankle-biting and I don’t know if CW is ever going to do anything about it. Ankle-biting won’t kill us, but it gets pretty damn sore after a while.
    ======================================
    I usually stay out of the so called ankle biting discussions but I just have to respond to this…….

    Mr. Carlyle, if you want to find a better blog by all means do so. If you’re sore and tired of being jostled then maybe it’s time for you to move on. The lefties would love to see this site fold up and disappear and I ain’t going any where. I can’t help but suspect your intentions when you make a comment like that.

    I’ve listened to rants and criticisms from you and Free Speech and lots of others, some justified and some not. But Mr. Wells is doing his best to bring forth the truth to those who seek it here and maybe if some of the chit disturbers would depart this place will return to the bastion of information I first entered two years ago. You have no idea how many hours a day he devotes to this site and yet you show him very little appreciation. He shouldn’t have to be a lion tamer and crack is whip to keep us from attacking one another. Some of us need to grow up and be adults, not playground bullies.

    And I’ve been wanting to tell Michelle that she is undoubtedly the Medal of Honor winner here. She has always been loyal to the cause and continues to bring valuable information here. I look forward to her comments and she never blathers on and on with self importance like some do. She is always brief and to the point. I have great respect and admiration for her.

    Now, getting off my soap box.
    ===============================================

    Well Said.

    What if obot-carlyle posted false defamatory info about you; said that you were “deranged,” threatened to file false charges against you and have you arrested, Paxson? Would you think he was on your side then?
    ___________________________________________________
    I didn’t see him do that, and if he did do that I would look at him the same way that I looked at the RAP gang that came in here a while back. I’m not sticking up for CC. I had my own confrontations with him. If he did say that to you, then his motivations are suspect.

    It is getting easier to spot the obots. Notice how they work in teams making personal attacks and backing each other up.
    *******************************************************************
    They did the same thing over at the Right Side Of Life site. 3 or 4 posters took up most of the time, to the point where you couldn’t discuss anything without them posting a long message espousing misinformation.
    You can argue with them all day long but their disregard for the truth makes it a waste of time.

    In any case, there seems to be too much raw animal behavior on this blog – kicking, gouging, b-tch slapping, ankle biting, etc. – and not nearly enough civilized human behavior.
    **********************************************************
    That’s your opinion, my opinion is, the people on this site are true patriots, who love their government when it is operated according to the US Constitution.

    Typical alinsky/tacqiya/lying tactic by obot-carlyle, accusing Patriots here on CW of the uncivilized tactics that obot-carlyle and the other obots use.
    *****************************************
    Nice how the truth comes out eventually, and then the name calling begins, they accuse us of doing what they are doing. Name calling, ankle biting, b-tch slapping, kicking, and gouging. Did I forget any?
    The subject here is Obama’s lack of credentials to be president, and the corruption in the court system preventing discovery of Obama’s NBC status. Hawaii has some explaining to do also.

    FS
    “As Bill G., Paxon, Dr. Sewell and others have noted citizen carlyle/bo is clearly a sunstein/bo obot/psyop.”

    …I just think he is a grouchy pessimist.
    ===========================================

    indymac | September 26, 2010 at 5:36 pm |
    I’m beginning to agree with FS that you’re just an obot in disguise

    Rosemary Woodhouse | October 4, 2010 at 10:23 pm |
    And I might add, Carlyle (FUBO), that objectively speaking, it is usually you who is at odds with the majority of posters on this site. Not casting judgment, but making an objective observation.

    Notice now that obot-carlyle is in moderation, sunstein sends in the B-string obots, but they are easily recognized by the fact that they immediately start defending obot-carlyle rather than engaging in intelligent discussions or they start posting long NONSENSE posts about bo being a CIA agent & Malcolm X being bo’s daddy. Best thing to do is just ignore these B-string obots.
    ====================================
    Does anyone see what happened here?
    The obot’s goal is to antagonize sincere commentors in attempt to detract from the topic. They’ve attempted to steer conversation away from the original discussion and they have succeeded.

    This is another brilliant post. Not sure where you find a gem like this one, but it makes a lot of sense.

    The best musicians are those that can do the jam sessions. Our own Australian musician James Morrison is a wonderful example of exactly what Charlie Daniels speaks. I have seen James Morrison (not to be confused with the late Jim Morrison) in concert a few times. Each time I have been in awe of the performance. He plays a lot of instruments including trumpet, and syntheziser like you would not believe. Monica Trapega (sp) is a singer who can do the same kind of jamming.

    An other example is of all people, Billy Wyman. He has a band known as the Rythmn Kings, and yes they know the art of jamming!!

    This analogy by Charlie Daniels is great. He is spot on. He gets it.
