    One of the zip codes in the list given to Grassley was a zip code I USED to live in.

    I recognized the 55443 zip code right away (I DIDN’T live in THAT one, but used to live close to it during my childhood): Minneapolis.

    Well, as far as I’m concerned, that’s appropriate: the people of the Twin Cities helped ELECT Obama, so let THEM live with the chaos that these criminal illegals will bring to their community, and when they’ve had enough of it, maybe THEN they’ll learn the hard way, as it’s been said, that “elections have consequences” – and hopefully make wiser choices in the future regarding whom they vote for.

    Doesn’t look like any of these zip codes are anywhere near ME.

    I’m not so sure I agree with you about that.

    When WatchingThePuppetShow stated, “What would happen if a major city was blown up? Game over.”, I think he’s HALF right. Assuming such an event happens during the Obama presidency, I think it WOULD be game over, all right: for OBAMA.

    Because at that point, even the Kool-Aid drinkers will have gotten a wake-up call that even THEY won’t be able to ignore. For many people who have been somnambulent up until now, they won’t be able to live in Fantasy World anymore. REAL WORLD will come crashing into their lives with crushing force – and at that point, they won’t be able to lie to themselves anymore that Obama’s incompetence and disinterest in his job is an amusing indulgence they can afford. Now it becomes a matter of life and death – and THAT tends to cause people to become bolt upright as nothing else can do.

    And when that happens, the national mood for Obama’s departure from office will become too great for his fellow Democrats to ignore or dismiss – and I expect Obama will quickly thereafter be announcing his resignation from the White House.

    And if you’re thinking that such an event will be Obama’s “Reichstag fire” trigger to impose a national state of martial law, suspend all future elections, and make himself president-for-life, as so many posters on this site would say: as I posted earlier here, I think such an attempt is FAR likelier to abruptly end Obama’s presidency than to make him fuhrer.

    It appears there’s a good likelihood that BLUE-STATE targets are in ISIS’s gunsights.

    @CormacNJ and OhioRifleman

    OhioRifleman, the 1500-word limit on posts here kind of FORCES me to have to be succinct!

    And CormacNJ, I could hardly agree more with YOUR points.

    I see so many people posting on this site who postulate that if Obama DID attempt to install himself as president-for-life, he will turn to the civilian federal workforce if he can’t get the military and civilian law-enforcement behind him in such an effort (as I firmly believe he WON’T be able to, at least not NEARLY in the numbers he would need for any such attempt to have a GHOST of a chance of success) to be his bully boys to impose and enforce martial law in this country and confiscate the citizenry’s weapons and start herding that citizenry en masse into detention camps – as though civilian federal employees are just as fearless warriors as our active-duty military personnel who will blindly charge utterly fearless of death into the waiting guns of an enraged American citizenry under such circumstances.

    And whenever I see that, I have often responded with THIS:

    “Civilian federal employees? Are these the same bravehearts who opened fire on the armed citizens who came out to Cliven Bundy’s ranch in Nevada early this year to stand in solidarity with Bundy? Wait a minute, what’s that you say, they DIDN’T open fire on those armed citizens but BACKED DOWN instead? Gee, fancy that!”

    If we have a major terrorist attack by ISIS on our soil before the next presidential election (and contrary to what many of this site would say, we WILL have a presidential election in 2016 even if such a thing happens, or else we will have a revolution and/or military coup that will end the reign of error of Obama), what I think the Democrats will do for starters is to quickly throw Obama over the side.

    Such an event would so imperil the chances of a Democrat successor to Obama in 2016 that I think that the Democrats would realize that to have ANY chance to save 2016 for their sainted Hillary or Fauxcohontas Warren or whoever ELSE they put up as their presidential candidate as well as also to avoid a bloodbath in Senate and House races, Obama HAS to go, and I think they would then quickly pay the same private visit to Obama that senior Capitol Hill Republicans paid to Nixon 40 years ago last month and tell him that it’s all over for him and that he has two choices: resign or be removed by conviction in an impeachment trial.

    And since if he’s convicted of impeachment charges and removed as president he loses not only his presidential pension but also his Secret Service protection (and for a man who has made as many enemies all over the world as Obama, I doubt very much that he wants to face such a world WITHOUT that protection), I think he would quickly resign, and if need be, the Democrats will throw some money at him to buy him off to leave.

  • [7] August 22, 2014 at 8:36am

    And I think there’s a pretty good chance that one of those cities could be the one that HE presently calls home – and that could leave HIM as a crispy critter.

    If an American city DOES get vaporized and/or is rendered uninhabitable in the near future, all but certainly, it’s going to be one of our liberal-dominated enclaves like New York City or Chicago or Boston or Seattle or L.A. or San Fran or such like that, and thus where the preponderance of the dead and dying will be the very people that voted for Obama. For their survivors, I wonder how their black Messiah will look to them THEN.

    I’m actually rather surprised that you didn’t also state in your reply to johnpaulkuchtajr that Obama would use such an event, if it happened during his presidency, to impose a national state of martial law, suspend constitutional guarantees and all future elections, and make himself president-for-life, since you have put forth this thesis on this site innumerable times.

    And I still stand by the belief that I have put forth on this site innumerable times in response: that if Obama TRIES to go here, the only question will be the over/under in terms of number of days that he remains president of the United States or even remains in the land of the living – and I would not choose a large number of days for the answer. I think if he tries such madness, he’s far likelier to end up in a rubber bag, a prison cell, or a Third World hidey hole than as Fuhrer Obama.

    From what I’ve read in the last 24 hours, the intelligence that allowed Israel to target and kill those 3 top Hamas commanders may have been inadvertantly supplied by one of Hamas’ own bigwigs.

    There’s a source in Israel, it’s being reported, that has said that Hamas’ political head in exile broke protocols and made a phone call to the head of Hamas’ military wing in Gaza to discuss trying to get another cease-fire with Israel – and Israeli intelligence intercepted the phone call.

    Sounds like a 21st-century equivalent of the infamous Zimmerman telegram in 1917 that helped push America into WW1.

  • August 21, 2014 at 5:39pm

    I think we’re past the point where the constitutional convention is a real option anymore to save this country.

    Mind you, I greatly respect Mark Levin and I understand his case for such a convocation, but even Levin has admitted on his satellite-radio show that the convention of the states he proposed in The Liberty Amendments will likely take YEARS to happen – and unfortunately, I just don’t think we’re going to have years to be able to wait. Because the way things are going, the crisis in one form or another – a currency collapse, a crippling economic downturn, massive social unrest (think Ferguson on a national scale), or so many OTHER possible catalysts – is very likely going to hit us before the convention of the states can really get rolling and will force this country’s hand to a nation-changing resolution.

    I’m afraid that I see secession as the only real option, for that part of the American citizenry which HASN’T sold its birthright of freedom for the world’s pot of stew and still wants a decent country in which to raise their children.

    The plain and simple fact, the portion of the citizenry that HASN’T sold its birthright of freedom for that pot of stew needs to get away permanently from that portion of our population that HAS.

    The only remaining question at this point is whether the national divorce will be amicable (relatively speaking) or NOT so amicable.

    “When they start killing here in the US, then whats his move?”

    A lot of people on this site, as well as many OTHER sites all over the Internet, would tell you that Obama WANTS ISIS to start killing here in the U.S. because his next move, they argue, will NOT be golf or hot-tubbing but instead to declare a national state of martial law, announce the suspension of Constitutional guarantees and future elections, and install himself as president-for-life.

    But I’m not one of those who subscribes to this line of thinking, because MY contention is that if Obama DID attempt the aforementioned steps, REGARDLESS of whatever circumstances he may use to try to justify such a move, he would find himself in very short order just as dead as James Foley. As would Valerie Jarrett and all the REST of his henchmen.

    Glad to see that we conservatives are supplying you with SOMETHING to keep you going, because it’s obvious that you’re not finding that ANYWHERE ELSE to fill what is obviously an empty and purposeless life.

    If laughing at us conservatives is what it takes to get you through the night and keep your obviously VERY tenuous hold on mental stability intact: well, knock yourself out!

    I WAS going to say that it’s good that we conservatives can supply you with a laugh lest the obvious emptiness of your life leads you to go postal on the world, and we conservatives wouldn’t want THAT on our consciences – but frankly, if you DID try to go postal somewhere, I’m not convinced you could even handle a gun without inflicting fatal self-injury first.

    Sucks to be YOU, doesn’t it?

    I think Larry Elder got it HALF-right.

    Racism SUPPOSEDLY directed by whites against blacks ISN’T a major problem for blacks in this society – or at the very least, there are MANY issues that are FAR greater problems for blacks in the America of 2014 that keep them hopeless and impoverished than purported white racism, not the least of which is the numbingly high illegitimacy rate for blacks.

    Racism IS a major problem for blacks, all right – but THEIR biggest problem in this realm with racism is BLACK racism directed against WHITE PEOPLE. And that racism is becoming a bigger and bigger problem for blacks AND America as a whole with each passing day, not only because of the obvious increasing proliferation of black-on-white crime (witness the explosion of “knockout game” incidents) but because a whole generation of black Americans is being poisoned by this soul-destroying pathogen, and in the process, being condemned to lives that are going to be nasty, brutish, and for all too many blacks, VERY SHORT.

    Jay Nixon is SUPPOSED to be a “moderate” Democrat (if that word even still has any meaning anymore when applied to a Democrat).

    But by wanting to stage a public crucifixion of a police officer before he even had all the facts just to ingratiate himself with the far-left core of the Democrat Party (the talk is that what he’s really angling for is a Cabinet post or some other high-ranking post in the administration of the next president if that president is a Democrat), he puts the lie to the notion of the “moderate Democrat”.

    One thing I HOPE comes out of all this is a sufficient critical mass of realization within the law-enforcement community of the United States that the Democrat Party is NOT their friend.

  • August 20, 2014 at 4:15pm

    I had a former pastor many years ago who told us that whenever he met a person who professed to be an atheist, the very first question my former pastor would ask that person is what kind of a relationship he had with his father.

    And almost without exception, he learned that the professed atheist had a very poor to non-existent relationship with his father.

    Someone who hasn’t been able to experience the love of an EARTHLY father than he can SEE is going to have a very difficult time with the concept that he has a loving HEAVENLY Father who he CAN’T see.

    I give you Barack Obama as Exhibit A for my pastor’s thesis. We KNOW what kind of a relationship he had with his OWN father (assuming that father was actually Barack Obama Sr. and not Frank Marshall Davis, but even if his true biological father was the latter, the same dynamic would still apply) – and look at the kind of adult it made HIM. A bitter, vindictive, vengeful, compassionless angry man who is angry with the world and, I have absolutely no doubt, also with God, although he all but certainly would never admit to either.

    Fine, have it YOUR way: we’re racist, homophobic, and lack empathy for other folks not like us.

    And now that you’ve figured that out, I trust then that today is the last day we will ever see you on this site.

    If you are NOT “racist, homophobic, and lack empathy for other folks not like them”, then WHY would you want to continue to put yourself VOLUNTARILY among people you believe ARE?

    Unless, of course, you’re being PAID to troll this site.

    @FLConservative

    Regarding your 2:21pm reply to J-Mo’s 1:30pm post, I fully agree with you.

    I wouldn’t have paid a theater admission to see that Noah movie with a gun pointed at my head, because I ALSO heard that it was a movie that, although it was SUPPOSEDLY on something from the Bible, clearly had no use for what the Bible actually had to say about it.

    And I will NOT spend my OWN money to enrich others to profane the Bible that way.

    So it takes more than something SUPPOSEDLY being based on the Bible to get me to pay to see it.

    I DID go to see God Is Not Dead in the theater, and LOVED it, and recommended it to every Christian I know. I can guarantee you that if after seeing it I had decided it was a piece of crap, I absolutely would NOT have recommended it to anyone.

    Regarding secular movies that have been made from Biblical themes, fealty to the Bible’s text and narrative is paramount to me.

    Probably my all-time favorite Biblical movie made by a secular enterprise is The Robe. Admittedly, it didn’t hurt that the movie starred one of my all-time favorite actresses, Jean Simmons, and it was after seeing that movie that I really started to appreciate for the first time what a truly fine actor Richard Burton really was – but I felt that the movie was respectful of and faithful to the Bible’s narrative about the life of Christ, and the ending is still one of my all-time favorite movie endings, right up there with the ending to Casablanca.

    @progressiveslayer

    I doubt that there’s ever been a president in my lifetime that is more despised by our people in uniform than Obama. The thought that most of the military would obey his orders to commit one of the worst betrayals of their oaths to protect and defend the Constitution just doesn’t make it for me.

    To be sure, I have no doubt that there would be SOME segment of the military that WOULD obey orders from Obama to commit the vilest atrocities against the people of this country, because history has shown that in ANY body of armed men, you always have a segment that will blindly obey even the most inhumane orders. But I’m VERY confident that that segment of our present military will be VERY SMALL.

    If the posts I’ve seen in the last few years on conservative websites from those claiming to be active-duty military about whether our troops WOULD in fact obey such orders are to be believed, I’m confident that the VAST majority of our active-duty military would NOT.

    Remember, 2/3 of that military hails from states that were part of the old Confederacy – NOT exactly a stronghold of Obama devotion.

    The plain and simple fact is, the Kool-Aid-drinking brain-dead lefties that vote for Obama do NOT join the military these days, and haven’t for over 30 years – because Democrat politicians have convinced them that the military is a career for LOSERS. So conservatives are far more over-represented in our military today than they were in 1932.

    If Obama is fool enough to try imposing a national state of martial law on this country, that wet dream will very quickly become Obama’s WORST NIGHTMARE – and I’m betting that there’s a very good chance that it won’t be a nightmare for him for very long at all, because I think he’ll soon be taking a dirt nap the moment he tries such madness.

    See my post below in response to progressiveslayer’s 3:15pm post and Sargeking’s 3:35pm reply to it, and maybe YOU would like to tackle the question I posed to both of them, in fact, that I’ve posed to MANY posters on this site who have floated the martial-law meme as you have: WHERE is Obama going to be able to get the bully boys who will be able to successfully IMPOSE and ENFORCE a national state of martial law?

  • August 19, 2014 at 5:40pm

    @ progressiveslayer and Sargeking

    Regarding your discussion about the possibility of Obama using the kind of violence we’re seeing flaring up in the St. Louis area to try to impose martial law on this country:

    yet AGAIN, I hate to sound like a Cassandra on this point on this site, but yet AGAIN, I must ask:

    Obama can DECLARE a national state of martial law, but SOMEONE is still going to have to IMPOSE and ENFORCE it, so just WHERE do you think he will be able to get the bully boys who will be able to DO it?

    Do you REALLY think that a U.S. military that Obama has THOROUGHLY demeaned and insulted from Day 1 of his presidency is going to blithely obey orders from him to commit the ULTIMATE betrayal of their oaths to protect and defend the Constitution and turn their weaponry on the American citizenry? I believe that at best VERY FEW will heed such a call, not even close to as many as Obama would need for such a purpose.

    Civilian law-enforcement? MAYBE in some of our liberal-dominated big cities their police forces would be willing to play Gestapo on the denizens of those cities, but OUTSIDE those enclaves, I am extremely confident that it will be a MUCH different story.

    Civilian fed employees? Do you REALLY think they’ll have the fortitude, for all the armament they’ve acquired in the last few years, to fearlessly march into the angry guns of an enraged and ARMED American populace in such circumstances? They sure didn’t at Cliven Bundy’s ranch.

    @LetUsReason on your 6:08pm post:

    You stated: “You seem to be saying, “Even if he declares martial law, that doesn’t mean that he can successfully carry it out to remain dictator.” (Correct me if I have misunderstood.)”

    Nope, you haven’t misunderstood at all, this is EXACTLY what I am saying.

    And I don’t disagree with you at all that Obama is ATTEMPTING to be the instrument to bring this country down: to what degree he SUCCEEDS in this endeavor remains to be seen.

    You also stated of Obama, “I believe he will declare nationwide martial law. I believe he will TRY to be dictator.”

    I don’t know whether Obama will ATTEMPT to impose a national state of martial law on this country, but here’s what I’m SUREST about: that if Obama is fool enough to TRY it, he will indeed be brought down, and I think that THAT will happen VERY QUICKLY, and that there’s a very good chance he doesn’t even live long enough to discover just how supreme an act folly this was.

    Even if Obama succeeds in ginning up mass chaos in this country, while to be sure there ARE parts of the country which would WELCOME him becoming fuhrer, there are many parts of the country that absolutely would NOT (like but by no means confined to Texas) – and that would, I believe, fight this attempt to the death, including by leaving the Union if need be, because the people of those states will understand very well that given what Obama would do if he DID become dictator, it’s either fight or die.
