Cold War, Part Deux

Cold War, Part Deux
Politicians and Washington D.C. told us officially the 45 year long Cold War was over. The United States has a stand-off with the Soviet Union described as a conflict with Communism and a nuclear arms race. During this era, the U.S. government tooled and re-tooled foreign policy, economic competition, technology and the intelligence community. Proxy wars appeared and military tensions spurred yet more re-tooling.
So, here we are in 2011, successfully having finessed an occupational forces conflict with what once was the Soviet Union, and whew, we should feel great about that, but, not so fast.
Not only has communism resumed as a threat to the way of life in America and with her few allies, we must be smart and prudent to admit, there are other wars America is fighting in occupational operations, which by some counts range from three to twelve. Let us remember the Cold War was not an occupational conflict but more a stand-off of two world powers over a totalitarian state versus a Representative Republic and an arms race.
We will leave the debate over Marxism, Socialism, Islam and Communism versus a Representative Republic (U.S. Constitution) for another time. Instead the objective here is to target the arms race, the quiet Cold War Part Deux currently in place and those countries in the silent or not-so-silent war. However, we cannot altogether exclude those types of totalitarian regimes with their quest for, and existing possessions of nuclear weapons, biological and chemical weapons, but eh new type of warfare……Cyberwar.
This list of countries against our way of life in America and her allies is not comprehensive, but does include: China, Cuba, North Korea, Vietnam, Venezuela, Syria and Algeria. We must also consider the Soviet Union enduring model which legacy is now part of Russia is back into the equation.
The Cold War ended we are told in 1991, but due to this argument on if it really did end, let us not forget the war/attacks the U.S. has included in recent history.
• U.S. Embassy Beirut 1985
• Achille Lauro 1985
• Pan Am Flight 103, Lockerbie Scotland 1988
• World Trade Center 1993
• Oklahoma City bombing 1995
• Khobar Towers 1998
• U.S.S. Cole 2000
• World Trade Center, Pentagon and Shanksville, PA. 2001
• Riyadh 2001-2003
• Cyber Attacks
o Google, NASA, World Bank, State Department, U.S domestic and foreign embassies, Commerce Department, Naval War College, Lockheed Martin
This list is by no means complete, but it does demonstrate a war against the United States. America is in war with herself over budgetary issues and deficit spending measured against weak revenues. We are still in an arms race, a technology race and a preservation race to keep America a strong and viable power. However, lawmakers and the White House are calling for additional spending cuts for the military beyond that which Secretary Gates eliminated to the tune of $400 billion. Is it logical then at the edge of a Cold War Part Deux, we allow the new Department of Defense Secretary Panetta and the Super Congress to yet gut the military spending by an additional $700 billion?
Are we prepared for this new era Cold War that may include Iran, Venezuela or Syria? America remains in a defense posture, which is not a viable strategy position in this second round of a Cold War.
Pray for Peace, Prepare for War

King George in the White House

The Modern Day King George
Hey, when was the last time you read the Declaration of Independence? Could it be that Barack Obama is worse than King George? Let’s examine just two phrases in the text.
“He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.”
What proves this statement to be true of the man sitting in the Oval Office?
http://bit.ly/ngowS6 Here is the release from last week. So, if some or many citizens pay cash for basic and legal purchases, they are suspect? If we choose to buy dehydrated foods, that is suspicious? How does this affect college students eating the staple of Ramen Noodles or many people across America that no longer have credit cards?
http://michellemalkin.com/2011/06/08/dept-of-education/ It should be noted that 27 different agencies have access to SWAT, but to use high powered weapons and aggressive sharpshooters to raid a private residence all due to a student loan that is in default?
http://www.rutherford.org/articles_db/commentary.asp?record_id=715 America is under attack by many government agencies, how can we allow this to happen without so much as a whimper?
“For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.”
http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/viewSubCategory.asp?id=838 Take a hard look at the ‘Czars’ that Obama has on his payroll. These people draft policy, not law and these policies create mandates in cabinet departments like the EPA, the Department of Education and Health and Human Services, just to mention only a few.
http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0611/57032.html In case you missed it, we are in an illegal war in Libya. Make no mistake, it is a war, there are uniformed troops on the ground. We have spent more than $1 billion dollars in an effort to remove Qaddafi, which has proved ineffective. Yet, no action on Assad of Syria?
Reviewing the Declaration of Independence is a compelling assignment and a necessary assignment. This is a very sad time for America as her citizens have not educated themselves and maintained the Checks and Balances. Those on the Federal payroll work for us, yet we are in twisted mire and it is our time to regain our power. http://www.nccs.net/articles/ril31.html
Our time is now to regain our power over government, make our voices heard and stop the tyranny.
Here is your link to the Declaration of Independence, the facts and the history.

Respect Their Sacrifice

Respect Their Sacrifice
I have a friend, a real friend that I have come to know in my heart that he is a true man, a loyal warrior. He is a SEAL. We understand each other yet many words don’t need to be spoken between us – those unspoken conversations are already known and understood. We have never met.
America has a team of friends we have never met so many words are unspoken. They are the SEALS. Some of our friends have fallen from us, yet our way of life is richer for they walked with us for a while. They asked for missions no other could undertake and yet never sought a hero’s title or fame. So we know what was in their hearts. These men are by definition like no others we know. Our SEALS took a loss that we can never explain, never realize and never forget.
We must honor and respect the secrets they require and the grief they deserve. The prayers flow freely in their name.
SEALS are the adopted sons of America. We embrace their spirit, loyalty and brotherhood. Those whose lives were lost leave behind an honor we cannot fully explain, that is a station few will ever reach outside a dream.
To our fallen sons, I know you have now passed the golden tree, mounted your shields to the ceiling and have a seat at the table reserved for the chosen at Valhalla.
“But if it be a sin to covet honour, I am the most offending soul alive’ ~ Shakespeare

Shame on Us

Our battleground is our homeland; we are citizen soldiers possessing a duty to defend our home. Americans has a unique identity, a legacy passed on through generations to us by our Founding Fathers. This identity is the ownership of being honest, respectable and free. We are privileged due to two key documents that paved the way to a land and way of life where all things are possible.
So, why do we have a growing misery index? It is submitted that our present condition is a result of apathy, in action and deference to politicians and people within our government. We gave away our authority and checks and balances without as much as a whimper. SHAME ON US
The first reaction here is to offer excuses for the failure of our duty. Did any of the Founding Fathers offer up an excuse for the treason they committed against the King? They anxiously assumed the duty, risks and threats for a single objective….FREEDOM These men had the weight of a citizenry on their shoulders and remained diligent and committed to a way of life and mission that was bigger than themselves.
The Founders did not have the tools and technology we have today, yet, they did have a fire in their belly that today no longer burns. SHAME ON US
We have no excuse for our dereliction of duty. What have you done for America today, this week, this month?
We must teach and we must learn ourselves. We must be pro-active and we must dedicate time and insight for the sake of our family, community and country.
Have you made a phone call today?
Have you learned something today?
Have you recruited today?
Have you established a plan or revised a plan?
Have you taken the time to be current on events domestically and internationally to know the risks and threats to our way of life in America?
Can you list five or more freedoms we have lost in the last year?
SHAME ON US
Have you made a pledge, offer or commitment to others that you have not fulfilled?
It is true people generally keep their distance in political conversations. In the mid 1700’s, there was an estimated population in the thirteen colonies of 2.5 million people. Those people lived a hard life as compared to what assets we have today. Yet, they freely gave time to their churches, their community and country. What are you doing? SHAME ON US
There are countless organizations out there asking for your participation for the sake of preservation and restoration to the Spirit of America. Money is not always required; often it is imagination, communications and skills that are needed. What commitments have you made and achieved?
SHAME ON US
Watchmen of America is a fraternity of dedicated civilian soldiers possessing a fire in their belly to defend our community, preserve our freedoms and restore respect. If we have not worked at this fraternity today and tomorrow…..SHAME ON US
Quote from a letter written by Tho. Jefferson to Horatio G. Spafford , March 17, 1814
“If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and will never be.’

Know Your Enemy, Know Your Risks

Are You Prepared?
Know your Enemy and Know your Risks
Are you hoping someday soon, America will go back to the productive days of years past? Are you hoping real estate prices will recover? Are you hoping legislators will resolve the debt issue? Are you waiting for the days that the 6 wars we are in globally will be over? Are you waiting for the value of the dollar to recover? Do you see a time when food prices will go down?
You will keep waiting…..and hoping…..the only person you can count on is…..YOURSELF
