    “I predict the illegals will create gangs (MS13) which will be countered by the citizens who will create gangs and we will see illegals hanging from overpasses like they did in Iran in 1981 and drive by shootings like we see in Compton today.”

    In other countries, the gangs created by the citizens who dealt with the lawless extra-legally were called death squads.

    And I totally agree with you that such a development could EASILY happen here if Obama floods this nations with illegals, many of whom will be CRIMINAL illegals to boot (of course, they’re ALL criminals simply by virtue of being here illegally, but what I’m referring to is those who were already engaged in lives of crime before crossing our border). There’s only going to be so far people can be pushed before they WILL fight back.

    As it’s been said, one becomes an insurgent when life as an insurgent is no worse than life under the present regime.

    “It won’t be safe to go outside in inner cities”

    THAT state of affairs has ALREADY been reached in many of our inner cities, like Chicago, Baltimore, St. Louis, Camden, etc.

    Actually, one way I could very easily see the population taking care of this problem is via a full-blown secession movement, where states where most of the decent citizenry (read: CONSERVATIVES) live realize that they have no future except that of misery by staying in the United States of America and thus decide to opt out.

    Yet AGAIN, I’ll repeat my oft-stated position on this site about what needs to happen here: STATE governors, backed by their legislatures and law-enforcement personnel, need to take a stand against the federal government and tell Obama in no uncertain terms that regarding all his flagrantly illegal constitutional oversteps, they will neither abide by nor submit to nor obey nor enforce those oversteps and will fight them, and then DARE Obama to just TRY to MAKE them comply.

    Obama can ignore Congress all he wants, but a stand by the states will get his attention right away, because it will then force him to make some agonizing decisions that he will NOT want to have to make.

    So we need one, just ONE, governor out there with courage who is disgusted enough with what Obama is doing to his state through these illegal oversteps and caring enough about the best interests of his state to step forward. History has shown that often all it takes to get a history-changing movement rolling is just ONE person of courage to step forward, because then he will inspire many OTHERS to do so as well.

    Some of you might riposte that Obama would LOVE this because he’d LOVE an opportunity for the feds to be able to use in earnest some of those hundreds of millions of rounds of hollowpoint ammo they’ve amassed lately, but at the WW2 Memorial in DC in October, at the Bundy ranch, and in Murietta, CA, confronted with open citizen DEFIANCE of the feds, Obama BACKED DOWN.

    Would-be totalitarians usually DON’T advertise in advance EXACTLY what they know they’re GOING to do if they ever get power – because otherwise a lot of them would never get that power to begin with.

    The Bolsheviks took control of Russia by winning the support of the peasantry with the slogan, “Peace, land, bread”. If the Bolsheviks had advertised in advance what their REAL plans were for the Russian people – “Enslavement, extermination, starvation” – would the Bolsheviks have ever been able to take power in Russia?

    Any con man doesn’t want the mark to know what’s REALLY being done to him until AFTER the play is complete and it’s too late for the mark to do anything about it.

  • [1] July 30, 2014 at 7:39pm

    Jester_PA is absolutely right about those people who go on shows like Doomsday Preppers: quite clearly, they value their 15 minutes of Warholian fame more than they value the survival of themselves and their families if the stuff ever really DOES hit the fan.

    I guess it’s never occurred to these people that the feds are all but certainly monitoring shows like this.

    In fact, I’ve heard that NUMEROUS people who have appeared on Doomsday Preppers were subsequently arrested after their appearance on the show. And I’m betting in the vast majority of these cases, it was for weapons-related charges, since many of these idiots foolishly proudly display their armories on such shows for the whole world to see – starting with the watching eyes of Big Brother.

    And I’d bet ALSO that a lot of those arrested had their armories seized – and have probably never seen any of that property ever since.

    Doginajeep when he posted at 12:02pm with, “The first thing to know about Prep club is, “There is no Prep Club.”“, and Jester_PA when he replied at 2:16pm to this post with, “As tongue-in-cheek as your comment appears, it’s also quite true. This is the first rule of prepping, never tell what you have and how much of it you have. Better yet, don’t even let anyone else know you’re doing it at all. All of those who let themselves be filmed for T.V. shows like “Doomsday Preppers” are complete idiots. Though they may have quite effective preps, they’ve just let anyone who would be interested know exactly what and how much they have. When the fecal matter hits the occilating cooling machine, these will be the first to be hit. Nice job, you’ve got your 5 minutes of fame, but you’ve completely blown you operational security.”, and Cavallo when he posted at 12:23pm with, “Keep it secret, or they’re going to find a way to take it from you.”, and nation_in_distress, in posting at 11:48am with, “I tell no one anything!”:

    all of these hit the nail right on the head.

    If you’re preparing for a SHTF situation by stockpiling food, water, other emergency supplies, and ESPECIALLY guns and ammo, the ONLY people you should be telling ANYTHING to about what you’re doing are those who would be on a “need to know” basis, who presumably would be people that if that day comes you’re going to want to have WITH you for mutual defense and protection.

    I’ve been saying on this site for MONTHS and will say AGAIN: state governors need to man up and tell Obama in no uncertain terms that regarding his illegal constitutional oversteps that are destroying their states, they will neither abide by nor submit to nor obey nor enforce them and to dare Obama to just TRY to make them comply. And these state governors need to mobilize their states’ citizenries and deputize any citizens willing to help out in standing against the feds.

    This will force Obama to either have to back down or to have to escalate. And while he MAY choose to escalate with force and violence, I very much doubt he will: if he was so inclined, why didn’t he do this at the Bundy ranch in Nevada early this year and in Murietta, CA more recently in the face of open citizen defiance of the forces of the feds (and in the case of the citizens who came out to the Bundy ranch to stand in support of Cliven Bundy, ARMED defiance to boot)?

    As I’ve stated before, Obama has a LOT to lose if he incites a full-blown revolution. Because such a revolution could well drive him from power, and if he loses power this way, he will be looking at a VERY bleak future (if he even lives long enough to HAVE a future thereafter). He expects to live like a king for the rest of his life, so I don’t think he will do anything that will threaten that, even if it means accepting public humiliation.

    @ The Big Mick and Cosmos102

    The Big Mick, I can hardly agree more with your 4:21pm in which you stated:

    “Demand away, you will get Nada from this Imperial President.
    You want Justice you better start channeling your Inner Founder:
    http://www.historyplace.com/unitedstates/revolution/rev-prel.htm

    Last time we had a Chief Executive this Out of Control, Out of Touch, and Arrogant About it we staged American Revolution v1.0 and whupped his behind.”

    And Cosmos102, you ALSO were spot on with your 5:40pm response to Oneirishman’s 4:09pm post in which you stated: “These State Gov’s should do their upmost to see that no benefits (freebies) are given by their States to these illegals. Hold them in a compound until the Govt decides what to do with them. I know for now the Gov of TN does not know where the children are, but I assume they will be attending school and Obama will want to redistribute our wealth to these foreign interlopers. Follow the money and muddy the water. See that the children don’t collect until you have your answers.”

    (more in a subsequent post)

    You can bet that a hefty share of them have already ended up, or soon will, in the sex trade.

    So George W. Bush was president in 2000, huh?

    That’s odd: according to what I Google on the Internet, George W. Bush’s presidency began on January 20, 2001, and that every day of the year 2000, Bill Clinton was the President of the United States.

    Unless you have information to the contrary. In which case, enlighten me.

    If you’re going to spout communist propaganda on this site, you should learn to be more subtle with it and be spouting OBVIOUS lies.

    @Dgala

    You replied at 12:45pm to Atrocities’ 12:07pm post with: “Your sentence in quotes is probably closer to the truth than most people want to think about. I for one do not doubt it for one second. I will be extremely surprised if we have elections in 2016, and have no doubt whatsoever if demorats win a house majority & keep the senate.”

    Seems to me that that we HAD this circumstance after the election of 2008, a Democrat president and Democrat majorities in both the House and the Senate. So as it became a foregone conclusion as we got closer to Election Day 2010 that the Dems were going to lose the House, why didn’t Obama and/or his fellow Dems simply see to it THEN that we didn’t even HAVE the 2010 mid-terms AT ALL?

    It’s been said that there are four boxes in this country from which to effect change: the jury box, the soap box, the ballot box, and the CARTRIDGE box. If Obama and/or his fellow Dems try to prevent an election in 2016 from even being held, having effectively tried to deny us the use of those first three boxes, the citizenry of this country, or enough of it anyway, WILL turn to that FOURTH box.

    Someone on another website in 2010, replying to a poster who opined that as things looked more desperate for Democrats as the 2010 mid-terms drew closer they would try to cancel them, stated that Americans WILL vote, either with the BALLOT box or with the BULLET box. I thought he was spot-on THEN, and I think that’s even truer TODAY.

  • July 29, 2014 at 2:24pm

    I fully agree with you that if Obama clearly was going to be impeached, he would resign before any impeachment vote, but if it appeared that a conviction in the Senate was all but assured, I don’t think you’d even HAVE an impeachment trial. Here’s how I think it would all go down.

    Suppose the R’s win control of the Senate on Nov. 4 and Obama does something that is so beyond the pale that even enough Democrat Senators have had enough of him and are willing to vote to convict to give the Republicans the necessary 67 Senate votes for this.

    I think that first, behind closed doors, those Democrat Senators would privately tell House Republican leaders that if they send articles of impeachment to the Senate, they WILL vote for conviction.

    Once senior Senate Dems realize that the votes are no longer there even in their OWN caucus to save Obama, and with them having VERY little leverage over their own caucus being in the minority now in the Senate, I think that THEY would ALSO go to the House Republican leaders behind closed doors and urge them not to even start the mechanism of impeachment because THEY will get Obama out of office.

    Then I expect the House leaders would tell those Dems that they have until such-and-such a date, and if by then Obama isn’t the EX-president of the United States, impeachment goes forward.

    THEN the Senate Dems pay Obama a private visit to tell him he’s through. Likely he would be bought off to resign and leave quietly.

  • July 29, 2014 at 2:12pm

    But judging by the fact that federal personnel backed down last year from the veterans and a few members of Congress who tossed aside those barricades that Obama ordered set up last October at the open-air WW2 Memorial in DC, from the scores of citizens who showed up earlier this year at Cliven Bundy’s ranch in Nevada (and were ARMED to boot) to stand in solidarity with Bundy, and most recently from the many protestors who stopped DHS from unloading its busloads of child illegals in Murietta, CA, I very much doubt Obama WOULD escalate with force and violence.

    Because I firmly believe what retired Col. Ralph Peters has oft-stated on Fox News is absolutely correct: that Obama is a COWARD. And I say that in the aforementioned incidents, Obama DEMONSTRATED this. Faced with real resolve – including from Vladimir Putin – Obama melts like the Wicked Witch of the West when a bucket of water has been thrown on her.

    ALSO, I think Obama is TERRIFIED of touching off a full-blown revolution. HE has a LOT to lose from such a development: if it happens and it results in his presidency being terminated much sooner and much more abruptly than he had been anticipating, if he isn’t killed as a result, he will be facing a VERY bleak future thereafter, and any thoughts of the sumptuous post-presidential life he is clearly expecting to live for the rest of his days upon leaving the White House will fly right out the window.

  • July 29, 2014 at 2:08pm

    While the Republicans are quite correct to eschew talk of impeachment BEFORE November 4 – unless they win control of the Senate on that day, any talk of impeachment is just wind – they should under no circumstances take it completely off the table for the remainder of Obama’s presidency, because to do so is telling him he has carte blanche to do WHATEVER he wants, and NO president should have THAT.

    But it STILL doesn’t change my oft-expressed opinion on this site of what is MOST needed to stop Obama: the individual state governors, backed by their state legislatures and law-enforcement personnel, need to become the first line of defense to Obama’s flagrantly illegal oversteps and tell him in no uncertain terms that their states will neither ABIDE BY nor SUBMIT TO nor OBEY nor ENFORCE such oversteps, and just try to MAKE us to do.

    And in the process, force Obama at that point to either have to back down or to have to escalate. And if he chooses to escalate with force and violence: well, then, Civil War II is ON.

    (I’ve got more to say, but I discovered that I will need more than one post to do it, so I’ll continue this in a subsequent post)

    “The question is, how long can they do that without permanent harm to the economy”

    Answer: not much longer.

    The rest of the world is ALREADY in the process of pulling the plug on Obama’s printing press, through moving the world away from the dollar as the world’s reserve currency (the BRICS nations, Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa, are currently in the process of creating a bank that will NOT be dealing in U.S. currency as the basis of its transactions, and probably many more nations around the world will be joining the BRICS nations in the months ahead).

    Once this process is a fait accompli, it will be all over in this nation except the crying – AND the looting.

    This is why so many financial advisors these days advise their clients to put their assets in precious metals and other commodities that actually have VALUE instead of increasing worthless dollars and U.S. Treasuries. And why so many people in this country have adopted a prepper lifestyle.

    In fact, I’ve seen MANY posters all over the Internet in the last few years who have told the story that when they went to their financial advisors to inquire about the best options for their portfolios, those advisors heavily pushed precious metals, and one metal in particular that many of these advisors counseled their clients to invest in, and according to the posters their advisors were NOT being flippant with this advice but were deadly serious, was LEAD!

    What I’D love to hear is these Democrat members of the House and Senate who for years have been denouncing the insurance companies as the very apotheosis of greed DEFENDING such a taxpayer bailout to these very same “greedy” insurance companies.

    For that matter, Obama HIMSELF has denounced the insurance companies this way, so I’d love to hear HIM trying to defend WHY such entities should be receiving taxpayer monies.

  • [3] July 28, 2014 at 5:40pm

    I doubt VERY MUCH that Barack has “guided it in” with Michelle for MANY YEARS NOW.

    Now with REGGIE LOVE, on the other hand, THAT’S a different matter altogether.

    Ed Klein, in his recent books on the Obamas, has reported that the Obamas sleep in separate bedrooms in the White House.

    But I heard THIS report well before Klein’s first book on Obama, The Amateur, came out a few years ago, and the report I heard was that they sleep in separate bedrooms at HIS insistence. The ONLY thing that surprised me about this was, given Obama’s TRUE sexuality, that they’re sleeping in separate bedrooms wasn’t at HER insistence.

    You sound like the poster child for what Lenin called a “useful idiot”.

    I don’t suppose it matters to you that “income inequality” has greatly INCREASED thanks to the policies of your Lord and Saviour Obama.

    And quite clearly, all but certainly being a product of our public school system, you have become too dumbed down to be able to understand that your Lord and Saviour Obama is absolutely DESTROYING the future of your generation.

    The ONLY thing you are to your Marxist puppet masters are expendable cannon fodder to usher in a communist dictatorship over that country.

    And if that happens, at THAT point, “useful idiots” like yourself will have outlived the useful stage of your idiocy to those you were useful idiots FOR, and you will then discover what so many PRIOR generations of useful idiots who ALSO reached this stage discovered. Which is that thereafter, if your Marxist masters even allow you to live at all, you will be nothing more than peon labor to them, and you will do WHAT you’re told, WHEN you’re told, and HOW you’re told by your masters, and if you balk, they won’t expend any effort at appealing to your favor, all they’ll expend on you is a piece of lead into your brainpan.

    Smokey_Bojangles, regarding my 12:30 response to WhoIsJohnGlt’s 12:11pm post and my 12:24pm response to this post of cosette:

    do you think I have fundamentally hit the nail on the head in my observations in these posts, or that I’m way off base?

  • [4] July 28, 2014 at 12:30pm

    Most likely what we’re seeing here in the black and Latino communities is a GENERATIONAL divide.

    It is the OLDER generations in these communities, all but certainly, that are the most fastidious church attenders, and the members of these generations are going to tend to be the most stable and responsible members of these communities and thus the most likely to vote Republican or at the very least not vote Democrat.

    Most likely, the YOUNGER generations of these communities are pretty well UNCHURCHED and overwhelmingly represented in the more irresponsible and unstable segment of these communities.

    The plain and simple fact is, these days, YOUNG blacks and Latinos are fairly secularized – and as a result, overwhelmingly drawn to a Democrat Party that has no more place for God than THEY do.
