Bobby Seale to Barack Obama

While ramblin around the interwebs one lonely bumpty night, I was researching a piece that pits our current eco-nomic state, with the aims of the sixties radical Black Panther's Party and then the spin off's that Bill Ayers Weathermen were trying to impress in a very serious way back when he was blowing up bombs at the Pentagon and I find this beautiful prophetic piece published before the election had even happened and the campaign was underway.

  • I personally know many of them who still have a deep rooted, well hidden hatred, for white Americans, for perceived racial grievances, both past and present. These people will interact with whites on a daily basis, but in private in the presence of other AA's express their true bitterness regarding this country, and the need for change, no matter how radical that change may be

    Based on things I have heard and read of his associations in the 90's with Bill Ayers and others,, when he was 34 and not 8 years old (as Barack relates his age to the bombing apex of Ayers, instead of when his true interaction occurred), I believe Barack Obama is one of those people with a basic belief that America is an evil and racist nation that needs radical change. I not only believe that of Barack, but of his wife Michelle too, who early in his campaign let slip her true feelings about this country.

    I too once held that same bitterness, and I won't claim it doesn't some time well up in me. But I finally rejected , and am able to overcome the hatred and bitterness, as I came to understand through my Christian spiritual experience what the true causes of racism and all other hatred and disputes between humans truly stem from.

    But I truly doubt Barack and Michelle have rejected their hidden rage and bitterness, under the warped hateful Afro-centric version of Christianity , which they were subjected to for many years under the pastor-ship Rev Jeremiah Wright.

Patty Murray Wipes her Nose and Sends Me the Tissue

Here is Senator Patty Murray's response to me via email regarding my email to her about the outrage over the AIG scandal back about fourty years ago.  I can't wait to hear from her about FOCA:

Dear Mr. Baker:


Thank you for contacting me regarding your concerns about legislative efforts to curb excessive executive compensation. It is good to hear from you.


Concern about shareholder value, corporate governance, and the escalating pay for corporate executives has led to a strong debate surrounding compensation.  News that recipients of federal assistance through the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), like American International Group, provided millionsof dollars in bonuses exacerbated frustrations with corporate compensation practices around the country.


In response to these developments in March,legislative solutions to the problem wereproposed in Congress.  The Compensation Fairness Act of 2009, S. 651, was introduced in the Senate to impose an excise tax on bonuses distributed by a company after receiving federal assistance to be paid by both the employer and bonus recipient.  The House of Representativesconsidered and passed a measure that would impose an income tax at 90% of the bonus on the recipient.  I have concerns about theunintended consequences of this legislation and who may be impacted.  You will be happy to know, at this point, neither proposal has a timeline established for further consideration by the Senate.


I will continue to monitor this issue closely, andwork to make certain that all institutions and companies who receive federal assistance use those funds appropriately.  But I will also make sure my colleagues understand the real worldramifications of these legislative proposals.


Should any legislation be brought before the full Senate dealing with extravagant bonuses issued by companies receiving federal assistance, please know I will keep your views in mind.  Again, I appreciate your thoughts on this issue.  Please don't hesitate to contact me again in the future

Catholics on the March

Look Out Alinsky!
Everything old is new again, so the dead split down the center of the Catholic Church in America, the Liberal wing that Obama is exploiting for all that it is worth, is coming alive again and studying Saul Alinsky, that Bugbear Extraordinaire in order to out radical the Radical Church.

Does that remind you at all of Spy vs. Spy?

So, It Comes Down To This

It seems like the echo of complacency is settling in sometimes, but with no outlet or avenue, any mouthpiece and without a leader, any hope seems disconnected and trashed. I write in my blog about some of the feelings I am personally going through and hope that it will be enough between me and my maker. I will not have to answer to anyone about how much effort is enough except to Him and to Him should always be enough. After all, I do not wish to sound too zealous, but He controls it all anyway, so what we do with it is what He really wants to see. 

I also belong to 4-5 part time Ning groups, twitter like crazy and try to be a nuissance. I'm reading nonstop but also I am thinking critically. That alone takes an immense amount of work and pretty much fills my day. I love my country, and most of all my country at peace but I will trade my comfort for my kids anyday and the prospects of their lives haunts me to my core. For thousands of years and hundreds of generations from the primordial ooze, parents have wanted no less for their own.

I divide my time in every way that I can think of and quite frankly, the ride gets to be too much sometimes. I definitely don't need to get into the litany of what I see as a perfectly coordinated attack not only on liberty and property, but on basic competence and human dignity as well as livelyhood and free enterprise. Each day, it is the same thing, a new assault from a new direction and and it surely is designed to run any opposition squarely off the rails in rage and tempestuous but futile effort. Too little is not enough and too much will forever be too little. God help us.

If, we are talking about action, there have been any number of planned and civilized outrage actions and at any various levels of organization and not one iota of success. But such a tour de force on that side could give the Nazi's a run for their money in the speed in which they have gotten things organized at at our throats.

I am not a history buff, but even Hitler had the Kaiser to check his progress for a time. Even Moussilini had to suppress a few wild hairs before he got really started. This has hit and hit and hit, over and over again along every faultline there was in America. It is amazing there is any opposition to speak of at this point. I am talking about - both the at once inept yet pervasive nature of how so much of it dovetails into the rest of it. What I am suggesting is that we pay attention to what we already know in our hearts and seem to be dumbfoundedly waiting for confirmation of it to happen.

Let's assume the worst. At what point in your to do list do you decide to buy a gun? Many of us have already decided that that is a perfectly reasonable thing to do and may have already done so or are in the process of becoming a firearm owner. There are all of those issues that ownership brings up. Safety, best practices and what to do if the stuff really hits the fan, breaks into your house and you actually have to use that new stuff. There's ammo and a safe to keep it and practice, practice, practice in order to know how not to shoot yourself if you use it, because, self defense and defense of someone else is the one thing that they are good for. I thought criminals had guns.

Then there is the other part of the 'to keep and bear arms' stuff that IS in the constitution that no one really wants to talk about because it is so extreme, so fantastical that it doesn't even remotely resemble reality in any sane sense, but now, somehow, in a far out way that the founders were in their foresight able to detect from 1775, that we don't seem to be able to recognize on the evening news that lie, lie, lie about not only the country, but also ourselves and what we believe, to be mocked and ridiculed and I just get super pissed and have a tough time with it. It is Saul Alinsky's 12th rule of freeze the target and isolate, ridicule and cut off the aid. Pretty much what they are doing over and over every day to some other make believe person that so much as looks at the president Obama as the insane lunatic he is. So we were supposed to use the second amendment for that?

I KNOW how crazy this sounds but I also know that this man decided that He needed a 72% share of General Motors today and that is not even by five o'clock eastern time. Believe me, by the time he gets around to telling you how you are going to live, you will be begging, no pleading for the reeducation camp. I pray that that is not the case, but he is acting with line with the rest of our government; as if that is the only plan that they are even remotely capable of handling.

I grew up on a farm. I have seen how animals react and they do so effortlessly and they do so all day long. They never tire and they never weary, they don't even sweat. They are acting on instinct. Fight. flee, mewl, eat, get sick / well, birth and death is in their nature. It is we, who give them names and make them move, choose the time of their coming and going, how they live and how they die. They do not have to think of tomorrow, there is only this somehow terrible now we are living in and only instinct to guide them. They do so because that is their nature.

This is how this administration is running, on instinct as one great beast. Because I have seen what animals are capable of up close and to what purpose they act and react to. I am not now offering how to become alarmed. I think we are all already alarmed because we realize the implications that is happening. But do we realize what we are up against? What does it want? What is it going after? What are the forces at work within it and when will they tire? While we are navel gazing, how much longer do we have to react and to save what we are feeling from happening? What would that look like if we did 'pick up our sword' and 'gird our loins' metaphorically speaking?

So many voices talk about organized resistance and a few with an outright bewilderment as to why there hasn't been actual revolt. But I wonder if any of those same voices have an answer as to exactly when should this happen? Does anyone alive have any idea what it would take to take on America in her Imperial majesty? It's not the bloody Redcoats we are talking about. Mel Gibson in the Patriot was pretty much right to refuse to having to fight one more war. It's an insane mess. We would be fighting for our rights with pitchforks and peashooters while they would be amassed with the whole myrmidon army. Will it come to that? Only chance would know once the bottle is spun. Last time it cost America 600,000 lives who's ghosts are screaming from their graves for for the sin of slavery on mens souls. There shouldn't have to be any more lives spent achieving a more perfect union

I Have Failed To Be What I Was Meant To Be

Where is the outrage?

Often times, I have set my heart on things of great personal importance and largely I have seen them crushed.  A heart is going to face such things in life, as it is evident on many, many crossroads, through life's hurdles.  Over and over, the same pattern is repeated, if things go further in this direction, one may say, then a part of life's plan will open for me and perhaps what greatness that is inside of me, the gift of life itself and the good that is in it will be more able to be built in this world.  But only 'if.'  

Whatever you see 'if' as being. 

Whether you dear reader believe that there is a cosmic set of forces controlling it, you would branch out from this crossroad into your own internal process, into the praise of the mighty power of a healing and knowing and still very loving God.  Or, you would conversely believe that there is a universe of random particles winging and sizzling at fantastic rates too incomprehendable to understand, with some unfathomed purpose, to what end is not knowable and you'd be seriously, seriously insane for even looking into the possibility that it will ever make sense.

The Crossroads.

Two choices with all of the independent and random justifications as there are individuals there to rationalize them. That is not the concern here.  What is the concern is the personal and independent is and will always be a part of the whole of society and society is the universal.  Every time that I met myself at the crossroads and made my decision I made it in accord with my conscience and full knowledge of what I had in me to become and I have begged to be but nothing has been true, if not that each time iot has come to pass that something will not,cannot allow it to pass.  Some might call them teachable moments, where failure meets ego and selfish desire.  Over and over in my life, something in me has brought me face to face with the reality that moral failure leads to personal suffering and being cut off from life itself and the destruction of that the position that makes it possible to even be at the crossroads of life, to have that chance.  My moral failure has led to my futile effort at the perfection I know is in me.

Yesterday was the destruction of so much that I had in my heart for that perfection, the sublimnity within me and for us all.  The Presidents Commencement Day Speech at Notre Dame was the death of so much of what I had hoped for my world, for my country and for the world.  I feel personally responsible and I beg the world to defend me while I cannot defend myself.  I have sinned against myself and that within me that is holy, so that, the world will never be that same.  Defend me world, because what I have sinned against was you and what yesterday was if anything but the affirmation that you wish to be destroyed with sin and vain attempts to convert life's purpose for your own desire.  So defend me.  I somehow disbelieve that you can. No one anywhere seems genuinely interested in actually helping anybody else and it would be seriously, seriously insane to try because you cannot get anywhere near helping someone else get back to that crucible crossroad and align every crosshair and make them shoot through into the making of the sublimnity for which each one of us is made.

I will be further from what I need because of my own failing.  Feeling that I have sinned and failed to speak out in time or act in some way that would make any difference at all.  So what is the worlds interest in this matter, but that millions of others have happened and have gone past the crossroads and gotten farther and more tarnished along the way.  The issue of abortion will never go away because it is a sin that destroys the holiness and sublimnity within each one of us.  Because that possibility and chance is all we have through our personal decisions.  We have either to accept the love that we have been offered by a loving God, or we reject Him. The consequence of following our heart and desires is the choice of following a cruel master, because every time the origin is human, it leads to destruction and a greater distance from the possibility of making the world a better place.  There are too many factors and it is beyond us to do it.

Nothing could be more destructive to live itself than abortion.  The consequence is immeasurable because the crossroads will never be more than a feeling.  The Rubicon we have crossed from which we can never go back.  Forgive me world that I did not offer a more vocal and unconvincing argument that the danger was ever more greater, that we will never go back and could not if we tried.  We will now have to press on without God and without the goodness which is our destiny because we have made war on ourselves.  Forgive me God for not watching out for your flock any better.  Why it has not gone together the way that it needed to I can only answer to you in my faith, but that I realized my error only too late.  It was not about me, but it went through me.  Have mercy.  Every step from now on is further from progress, further from the place where the human heart can reside and seek rest.  All that is left is the destruction of all that is important in life, and every kind of deciet and deception will be employed to hide it.

How did Fr. Jenkins  at Notre Dame and all of those people who are a part of my faith that support this man, who acts as an appeaser while he steals what he wants and sows contempt even in his natural enemies homes?  It sounded to me like Hitler's Sudetenland speech where he still sounded reasonable, using straw man to paint his detractors as unreasonable.  He got many people to believe that he was a reasonable man, that he was thoughtful and had considered one's interests and yet had to compromise a little principle to gain so much of what the German people could be.  Always, with the tuck of principle here, a little reasonable trimming of purpose there and a tiny bit of loss of freedom there and always ruthlessly fast in loose in action, covering so much so fast that one could never believe it.  How he does it will matter very little very soon because from now on, the church has the soil of abortion on its hands now, and the church is made from Christ sacrifice, the most Holy and redeeming mercy.  This man knows how to destroy the American church because of so many willing acolytes in his new church. The church of so much incredible power that it will drag the whole world down with it when it will be crushed.  There is no other possibility, as we are destined to be caught in it.

Forgive me. I have failed.  But think of Bonhoeffer, and pray that I will have the strength to face what is coming with as much fire and faith to be a good soldier in the time of the greatest darkness.   There must be a new light, have mercy.  Amen.

Culture War Update; The Schock Troops Of Marriage Reform

I guess you have pretty much been saturated by now about the new administrations Shock and Awe on deliberately and steadfastly prosecuting a war on terror against conservatives in America, which stands to reason since to their unusual intelligence makes everything Bushes fault and the fault of all of their followers, the neo-cons and anyone around them that does not believe that the Truthers Were Right.  But here's a little news for most of them.  They are wrong, but their pig headed love for all things progressive means that they will drive us all down with them because a fifth column media says its all right and any cracks in reason can be pasted over with another hit peice on fake news or, perhaps what Paris Hilton's dog had for lunch.

So, when it comes to dialog, you pretty much have to go it alone with them whenever they challenge you on the fact that you don't echo chamber the echo chamber that follows their star chamber which just happens to be everyone and everything Barack Obama, but I repeat myself at the risk of nausea.

But remember when, not to long ago the nation rose up in the millions to defend, not just once but three times in California, and almost countless numbers in states all across America, time and time, etc. That every time it came up for a vote, it was voted down, that people did not want Gay Marriage.  It was blamed on the Latter Day Saints for having provided funds to a political PAC to campaign against it this last time in California, which I am sure that you have heard and could just as easily find reference to it as I can, that this comes right out of Saul Alinsky Power Tactics 7 and 3 to freeze and then ridicule, as well as a few others I could easily argue the hows and the why for's.  But during all of 'the struggle' for 'gay rights' and 'equality' for 'gay marriage' came the argument that if gays ever got the right to marry, legally recognized, bona fide stamp of federal approval, then that would back door every other form of sexual perversion being officially recognized and sanctioned. I know, it was a slippery slope, but again, that does not mean that its a false assumption, when the decision rendered was false in it's assumptions, 

The argument was that gays should have the right to marry because no one picks who they are as a characteristic from birth, so how could they be responsible for their own lack of similar rights? It is the nature vs. nurture argument that goes way back to the first officially recognized form of homosexuality in the Kinsey Report.  But that has nothing to do with the governments trying to throw off the yoke to protect its citizens from the destruction of Natural Law. This is something which Cicero warned us well about and because the founders wanted to secure for us in the debates on the constitution written in the Federalist Papers.  I like Cicero because he was murdered for what he believed, he is quoted here because he chose to say what he believed anyway, though it cost him his life.

So, now in one of the countries which favor gay marriage with legal sanction and have had it for quite some time, comes a case that the gay alliance said for years would never happen,  a polygamy case in Canada.

"Canadians of all backgrounds share some basic values, like a belief in human dignity, equality between men and women and the rule of law. It is these values that unite us as Canadians," states a note prepared for the minister. "The practice of polygamy represents a clear challenge to those unifying values."
The Criminal Code outlaws "any form of polygamy" or "any kind of conjugal union with more than one person at the same time, whether or not it is by law recognized as a binding form of marriage.

This realy is beginning to sound familiar isn't it?

Please read the whole article and get informed.  This storm is coming.

Saul Alinsky In The Crosshairs, Pt. Duex

Previously, We have covered this fight and the origins of it in one of our posts, they say that brevity is the soul of wit, therefor, I mock myself by this blog.
The enemy has long had great love and mystical affection for one radical of radicals, fully raised in the wobblie(IWW) tradition; Saul Alinsky.  At the risk of harping, it does need further explanation that all of the colleges in the top ten during the eighties were trying to teach this stuff and mostly succeeding, I was myself thrown out of a college for writing (poorly) a term paper on human rights, that of the unborn but still very much alive people.  For that I was ridiculed, so points 3 through 6 of Power Tactics from the book, (Saul Alinsky; Rules For Radicals,) are discussed here.  Enjoy!
  • “Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules. You can kill them with this. They can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”
They have used this one to tear down the catholic church through he church scandals,, and mostly for the good, but the publication and industry of it were more for getting organized as a community for reform of the catholic church.  One would have to ask why the church, but if you dont already have an idea then you probably are not reading this blog.  They tear down the church as one of the solid pillars of the good government.  If I have to draw you a map, again, brevity. Thanks for your understanding.
However, Alinsky also taught the clergy to fight the clergy on this one.  More on this later I hope.
  • “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also, it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.”
This is the administrations whole argument, to take the opposition and make strawman arguments against them.  The Presidents whole argument for stealing our wealth and destroying the nation, is to stuff words into a straw man and say, this is what I say to that.  Ridicule and blame and dead political careers along the way. Mark my words.
  • “The threat is generally more terrifying than the thing itself.”
This part is where alot of BS starts: They plan to start a TARP, Close the internet, national conscription, take away freedoms, lock up old grandmothers and email the Ayatolla secrets to the newest nuke.  It goes on and on, and this way, even the opposition is scared the beejeezus out of pissing the Prez off.  Not that I think to highly of it.  Just saying, there is a curtain and in this case, a teleprompter.
  • “In a fight almost anything goes. It almost reaches the point where you stop to apologize if a chance blow lands above the belt.”
I am going to stick to my guns and not get billious at this point.  You probably already know my mood and I really try to be a happy guy.  I am pretty damn torqued about the last one hundred days, but most of all, I hope there is a very dark and cold place in hell for the people who put me in this mood, and the way they have treated a people to a mood of paranoia, where there was none, where there was harmony and brotherhood and made it a wasteland of trust for a vision, which almost no one else shared, and now, due to the general lack of attention to due dilligence, and a steady decline of the moral order, a refusal to get involved when your own efforts are wasted in keeping up appearance and maintaining a status quo of an illusion of immense stability.

This is a declaration of war.  Cicero said it best:
  • True law is right reason in agreement with nature; it is of universal application, unchanging and everlasting; it summons to duty by its commands, and averts from wrongdoing by its prohibitions... It is a sin to try to alter any part of this law, nor is it allowable to repeal any part of it, and it is impossible to abolish it entirely.  We cannot be freed from its obligations by senate or people, and we need not look outside ourselves for an expounder or interpreter of it.  And there will not be different laws at Rome and at Athens, or different laws now and in the future, but one eternal and unchangeable law will be valid for all nations and for all times, and there will be one master and ruler, that is God, over us all, for he is the author of this law, its promulgator, and its enforcing judge.  Whoever is disobedient is fleeing from himself and denying his human nature, and by reason of this very fact he will suffer the worst punishment. (Quoted in Ebenstein, Great Political Thinkers, p.133.)

Thus, the wicked have overpowered the strong and they themselves will cast themselves down.  All we need to do now, is get up and fight this battle and win this war.
