Sometimes it seems like our Federal Government is stuck on “repeat”. It’s almost as if each new administration looks at the mistakes in foreign policy of past administrations and assumes that they can do the exact same thing only with different results.

We are witnessing the ramifications of the arrogance of the central planners right now in the Middle East and North Africa. How many times will our government pretend to be friends with “rebels” to provide them with weapons, etc., and assist in overthrowing their government, then act surprised when they inevitably turn against us?

This tactic of arming the opposition of our “enemies” and allowing them to wage a proxy war on our behalf has only netted a few of the results that it is intended to. It allows the US to project its power into a part of the world where we don’t care to wage a full war or are incapable of doing so effectively.

For the most part, the proxy wars keep the US public satiated and less motivated to protest. In a proxy war there are minimal casualties to US personnel, we mostly lose money and weapons, which is apparently much more acceptable. The proxy wars are mostly left out of media reporting and when they are mentioned they are described as “humanitarian aid missions” and posed to the public as operations intended to help oppressed people.

But there is always blow back from these “aid missions” and the gains that were made are erased ending up resulting in a worse situation.

Aside perhaps from WWII when we armed and assisted the French Resistance against the Nazi occupation the track record for rebel funding has been less than stellar. One example would be that the CIA funded Bin Laden and Al Qaeda to fight the Soviets in Afghanistan, then we were “surprised” when they attacked us several years later.

Right now the rebel forces in Egypt, Libya, Yemen, and 7 other countries are showing their appreciation for our “assistance” by attacking our embassies and even killing one of our ambassadors. This is the first time a US ambassador has been killed since 1979.

The media and administration are blaming some nut job back here in the states who made an anti-Muslim video for all of this going on. While the video may have been the catalyst it definitely isn’t the root cause. The people in that part of the world have to be sick of drone strikes, hummers in their streets, and foreign money pouring into their lands to fund continuously expanding violence and war among their people.

In conclusion, I’m not “blaming America” and I’m not blaming Obama or Bush. I am blaming this failed foreign policy that our Federal Government continues to attempt to implement over and over again, administration after administration, failure after failure.

Regardless of what party assumes power this election it appears there will be more of the same. Sadly, that means we will see more events like we have witnessed this week in Egypt, Yemen, and Libya.

Good Riddance

Posted: April 11, 2012 in Big Government, Big Media, Politics, Ron Paul

As I previously predicted (in this post) Rick Santorum was the latest canidate to drop out of the race for the Presidency. Granted my timing was off, but let’s not nit pick it.  Rick didn’t give a specific reason for dropping out but I assume it is a combination of things, including that there is no prayer (no pun intended) that he could have won the general election. The establishment Republican party most likely demanded that he step aside. Being the “team player” that he is, Rick took his orders and quit.

Newt gingrich will be the next candidate to drop out. As you can see from his last few days of interviews he is floundering a bit. He is getting information/advice from different sides telling him whether to stay in or whether to go. Ultimately as cash flow finishes drying up and Rick Santorum supporters are pushed behind Mitt Romney by an inevitable endorsement of Romney by Rick, Newt will bow out of the race. He might well drag it out for awhile to get a little more publicity, but he will drop out soon. The political winds are blowing and the establishment is barking orders, the foot soldiers of the establishment will fall in line and do as they are told.

For all intensive purposes most of the public considers Ron Paul to be out of the race. The major television and radio hosts hardly ever even say his name and when they do they can’t even muster a few kind words. Supporters of Dr. Paul are routinely marginalized and written off as cult like followers of a man that has no chance of winning. In my opinion, the people who think this way are missing the boat completely. Ron Paul supporters are motivated, dedicated, organized, and idea oriented. The R3VOLUTION is not just about Ron Paul, it is about individual liberty, personal freedom, a limited constitutional government, and implementing a responsible fiscal policy as well as a sane monetary policy. These ideas are not hinged on the “success” of any one candidate.

I do not see Ron Paul quitting before the National Convention in Tampa. He is the flag bearer for an entire movement of ideals, if he quits then he signals that the movement has died. It is crucial that Ron Paul stay in until the end and continue to use the big stage to reach as many people as possible. The ideals of Liberty are spreading, despite what the major news outlets choose to ignore.

The establishment and its media goons will continue to push for and stand behind statist, big government hacks like Romney until the very end. You will see the masses duped by big media types like Beck, Hannity, Limbaugh and Levin shill relentlessly for Romney until his nomination. The cries for “laying down” arms and falling in line to vote Republican have been going on for months, they will reach a fever pitch now that Santorum is out. Unfortunately there are enough people out there, who want to be told how to vote, to win the nomination for Romney.

From here forward:

– Big Media will reiterate the soundbite that Mitt Romney’s nomination is inevitable.

– Big Media will continue to ignore Ron Paul even once he is the only candidate left besides Romney

– When Paul pulls down 30+ percent of the vote versus Romney the media will demand that he step out of the way because he is only muddying the waters and hurting the party.

– Paul will stay in until the convention. If he comes to the convention with more delegates than Romney (which is possible) the media hacks will claim that he is trying to “steal” the nomination.

– If he does successfully “steal” the nomination, the Republican Party will not rally behind him. New rules will negate his victory and Romney will become the nominee.

– A mass exodus of moderate and independent voters from the Republican Party will occur. The only way Romney can retain them is if he raises to the middle and panders to that part of the electorate. Which will alienate the conservatives. It is easy to see why the nomination of Mitt Romney will secure the successful re-election of President Obama.

If and when Mitt Romney is nominated as the Republican candidate for the Presidency, I will quit blogging about the Presidential race. I will instead begin focusing on smaller elections that will actually matter to the Liberty movement. If you know of a Liberty candidate that is running for office and you would like me to analyze their race, please comment on this post.

Rick Santorum’s big government side is beginning to shine through the blanket that Republican talk radio (GB, Hannity, Levin) has tried to put over it.

He has now publicly stated that he would “vigorously” work to end internet pornography if he is elected to the Presidency. (Vigorously Rick? Hahaha couldn’t he find a less pornographic way of saying it?) Add this new crusade to his opposition to equal rights for homosexuals, as well as his desire to bomb and pillage Iran and he has hinted for the same in Syria, then there are his establishment “team player” principles.

When you consider these points surely it is obvious why Rick Santorum is a front runner….he is definitely for the protection of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (unless you are gay, muslim, or horny, then you don’t have those rights).

Please help spread the truth about Rick Santorum, I dont think everyone who supports him is aware of his extremist views. He claims that his priorities are fixing the economy and creating jobs (reducing unemployment). From his campaign rhetoric you could assume that those actually are his priorities. But, there are many interviews with Rick coupled with his prior history that show the contrary. In my opinion these are the strongest indicators of what he will actually prioritize to do once in office.

From his own words he will legislate from the oval office via executive order, I believe he will impose his extremist views on the general public through coercion and intimidation of Congress much like Obama has. I believe he will “fundamentally transform” America, just as his predecessor has done, if he is elected.

Do you remember candidate Obama? He talked about fixing the economy, and getting Americans back to work. We kept hearing whispers that he was a Marxist (in reality he is more of a Fascist), a few pointed out his troubling history on the topic of abortion, some suggested that he wouldn’t be the “peace” president that he was promising to be. In other words, the truth about candidate Obama was in his candid comments and his history as a state politician. What the Big Media covered was mostly empty campaign rhetoric. Don’t let this happen again. For whatever reason Rick Santorum is mostly getting a free pass from Big Media, as a result we may be headed toward another terrible Presidential election mistake in America.
