Some see, few know, many choose to wander aimlessly in a fog, devoid of sunlight. I seek the light of day and leave the others to their chosen realm of ignorance. They are the ones who have brought this great nation down. I write only for the benefit of those who possess the courage required to restore our birthright.

AND YET THEY WILL DO NOTHING-GUEST BLOGGER PAUL COLLINGS


The following was not meant to be a blog. It was a comment directed at me, but the message rings loud and clearly, and should be read by all.

Danny, I can only agree with you on most things. The problem as always is convincing others who spend their days agreeing but not believing. What do I mean by that? Well, day after day I look on twitter, I read essays by some of the most intelligent thoughtful people in sources ranging from David Horowitz and his various outlets, Thomas Sowell, the people of PJTV, like Bill Whittle, the Daily Mail (UK), The Guardian, WaPo, Huffpo, comments from articles written ect, ect. I'm sure everyone gets the picture and does the same.

ORWELL WAS RIGHT


“The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others were cowards and hypocrites. They never had the courage to recognize their motives. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. How does one man assert his power over another? By making him suffer. Unless he is suffering, how can you be sure that he is obeying your will and not his own? Power is in inflicting pain and humiliation. Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing. In our world, there will be no emotions except fear, rage, triumph, and self-abasement – a world of fear and treachery and torment. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face forever.”
George Orwell-1984 ... Hat Tip to Patrick Van Nuland.

ANGER IN OUR STREETS


I have long warned about the leftist political agenda that is leading our nation to ruin, about the pro communist tendencies among many of our residents, and of the apathy that has long infected this nation. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. Today I shall speak through such pictures, keeping my own thoughts to a bare minimum.

WHY THE PROGRESSIVES ARE WINNING


There have been those who have at times regarded me as being arrogant, irreverent, intransigent, and obstinate, and I must confess; Guilty as charged to all of the above, but history has provided my role models and none of them stood as reeds, bending to accommodate each passing wind. All that stand erect eventually fall, even the mighty oak, but it falls not with a whine and a whimper, but with a thunderous crash that reverberates far and wide. So too shall it be it for those of unbending principles, for unlike the reed, they stand strong before a battering storm, held erect by their beliefs, their ideals, their courage, and their strengths. This world has been built by the men of the mind, those with purpose, and those with vision. Sadly it is being brought down by their counterparts, the weak, the spineless, the craven, and those who are devoid of any semblance of morality.

THEY REALLY DO NOT WANT TO KNOW


Choosing the title for this essay proved to be a bit of a challenge, as I also considered 'To Reach The Unreachable', reflecting my love of the song 'The Impossible Dream' and my years of effort to reach those who choose not to know. I could be callous like so many and shrug off my failure with the stock phrase of 'Well, that is their loss.' I am not callous and must regard my failing to reach them as my failure in the grand scheme of things, as reaching the frightened and confused was my whole intent when I began blogging on the internet.

THE BIG PICTURE


In writing I frequently use the term 'The Big Picture'. That term dates back to a television series of the 1950s produced by the U.S. Army that was designed to inform the American public about the events that occurred during WWII. The title, as the name implies, tries to depict the war as viewed from the flag officers' viewpoint rather than isolated events as seen from the individual foot soldier, company or division levels. My greatest frustration as a writer has been my inability to get my readers to grasp the big picture of today. Instead they tend to focus on, and be distracted, by isolated events and cannot view those events as part of a larger tapestry, all connected in one fashion or the other, whether occurring in St. Louis, Washington DC, Liverpool England, or Kabul Afghanistan.

NOW I KNOW THAT I AM RIGHT ABOUT 2016


I have long expressed my doubts about there even being a Presidential election in 2016. Now I am certain of it. Whether the topic is warfare or politics it is always a good idea to allow your enemy to feel comfortable in his delusions and wishful thinking. The agenda that has been directing the course of this nation is very adept in this field of misdirection. I have long written that the progressive movement would never again allow a man such as Reagan to assume office and upset their plans. Senator Ted Cruz, one such political leader, has now become the conservative American firebrand, and the last great hope for a nation in shambles.

ALL IS NOT AS IT SEEMS IN WASHINGTON


I do believe that Ted Cruz is one of the most brilliant elected officials in Washington DC. He is undoubtedly one of our greatest patriots, and totally fearless, and he has just done something that is totally unorthodox. He started a fight that he knew in advance that he would lose. That makes no sense at all unless one has a devious side and, being totally dedicated to this nation and its Constitution, has decided to expose the treasonous members of both parties now serving in the Senate. What could be the motive. Shall we go there?

THE LEADING EDGE OF THE STORM


If you have never been to war, you could never possibly comprehend the true soul draining meaning of combat fatigue. It sets in as day after week after month of stress and fear and assorted horrors wears on a man's soul until he is losing the very will to live. Now I am not saying that the conservative American public are suffering combat fatigue, but I am saying that they have been fighting a long, so far bloodless war, that began the day that Hussein Obama was elected. They, you, I, all of us to one degree or the other have been opposing tyranny, and the fact of the matter is that we are all weary to the bone, and the real fight has not yet begun, but believe me now, it nears. Do not be taken by surprise.

CONSERVATIVES IN FANTASY LAND PART THREE


When I begin a series of essays I generally have an overall view where each segment will lead. This one is an exception to that rule as it is the result of numerous comments made by a group of fellow patriots firmly adhering to the concept of Ted Cruz being elected in 2016 and questioning various positions that I put forth in my last installment of Conservatives In Fantasy Land.

THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER


The term 'Thirty pieces of silver' always invokes the image of betrayal, and so you probably know where this essay is leading. 

I have long written of my belief that there is NO political solution to the problems we face today. This one essay, Tahrir Square U.S.A., dates back to February of 2014. Allow me to offer an excerpt: 'I make no secret of the fact that I have absolutely no belief that there is a political solution to today's problems. No election is going to alter the course of this nation. If that course is to be altered it will be done only with an uprising of our people as we witnessed occurring in Tahrir Square in Egypt. Anything less and we are simply delaying until tomorrow what should have been done years ago.'

DECEMBER 7, 1941-A DAY THAT WILL LIVE IN INFAMY-GUEST BLOGGER SHANNON WARD


I write this the day after December 7, 2014.  Many years have passed since the day of 'infamy.' A day that many vowed would never be forgotten. But like so many dates of history and the importance, we have forgotten. On many occasions we have neglected to pass on the history of our country. The forming of values in this great nation. In many cases we have forgotten those who fought for our country. Men and women who believe in the values of our country. I also have to admit I didn't always pass on to others what I know of history.

CONSERVATIVES IN FANTASY LAND PART TWO


My last essay Conservatives In Fantasy Land Part One was but a brief summation of some of the predictions that I have made over the last five years, predictions I might add that have already come true or are in the process of coming into full bloom right now. It would be so nice if I had to work harder to find vindicating evidence of my beliefs but such evidence is overwhelming and there are times I simply hate being right. Sadly most Americans slumber on. Some are hard core liberals and progressives with an agenda to fulfill and an axe to grind, but so very many are quite simply deluded patriots, content to spend their time on the internet discussing who they want to vote for in 2016, and discussing the latest hoax.

CONSERVATIVES IN FANTASY LAND PART ONE


Nearly five years ago when the battle cry was 'Vote em Out' I was warning of civil war and the utter futility of believing that our elected officials would support the American public. Since then we have had the election of 2010, regarded by many at that time to be a victory. Also, at that time, I was writing that it was a victory in name only as the RINOs of the GOP were giving false hope to America. An (R) by a politician's name is very deceptive, as that (R) misleads the gullible. False hope, by the way, leads only to despair and anguish, but Americans, being what they are were immediately looking forward to 2012 when we would really 'Vote em Out'. Yes sir, we were going to show Obama the door, marked EXIT.
